In order to discourage gatherings in parks and in making an effort to contain the spread of the COVID-19 virus, the City of Haltom City will be closing vehicle access to all city parks beginning Thursday, April 9, 2020. These restrictions will be in place through the entirety of Easter weekend.
Easter tends to be one of the busiest days of the year in our park system and the Haltom City Parks and Recreation Department is urging the community to stay home instead or limit their park visits to short walks or bike rides to keep the parks from becoming overcrowded. There should be no gatherings of any size and remember to maintain social distancing, limit exposure, and practice good hygiene. While the parks will not be full of families playing together, we hope the egg hunts and Easter brunches will still take place but from the safety of their own homes.
Police officers may issue citations to those in city parks who are trespassing or gathering and not adhering to social distancing standards.
