With Governor Walz's Stay Safe Minnesota Executive order now in effect, the City of Duluth Parks and Recreation division has updated their COVID-19 related park policies.

The updates include:

  • Beginning on June 15, the Parks and Recreation division will begin accepting permit requests for activities, reservations and events at select outdoor park locations, and pavilions for up to 25 people. This is contingent on groups receiving City approval of their pandemic operations plan.
  • Following the states guidance in allowing sports that are categorized as medium and high to resume in the future, the City may not have the capacity to provide for game-ready playing fields. Until at least July 1, games and competitions will not
    be permitted on any City fields without approval. Organizations and leagues may only proceed with maintenance, practices, and games (when allowed) after a pandemic operations plan has been approved by the City.
  • The following road closures will reopen to the public on July 1: Seven Bridges Road, Skyline Parkway along Hawk Ridge, Skyline Parkway and Hank Jensen Drive around Enger Park, Skyline Parkway from Haines Road to Highland Street,
    Skyline Parkway through Magney-Snively Natural Area, and Lincoln Park Drive.
  • Wade Stadium will be open for private rentals including sports practices and birthday parties for groups up to 25. Private event rentals can begin as soon as June 15.

Another item of note is that beach along Park Point will remain open, but there is a limited number of trash and recycling cans available so the public is being asked to help by packing out their trash for the time being.
