You can still walk in our local parks in Kewanee. That said, everything else is closed. Kewanee Parks Director Brian Johnson called WKEI’s open line program on Thursday morning with a message: Walking only at local parks. The skate ramps, play equipment and restrooms are closed. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, items such as these carry the potential to carry the virus. Residents are reminded to avoid touching commonly touched areas of the park. This also extends to the basketball courts. The basketball courts in Kewanee Parks are closed. Baker Park Golf Course and the Driving Range are closed. No, walking on the golf course is not permitted at this time. All of these measures are part of the Governor’s Shelter at Home order. They are also common sense solutions for limiting exposure to COVID-19. This message was posted this morning on the Kewanee Park District Social Media:
UPON RECOMMENDATION FROM THE HENRY COUNTY HEALTH DEPARTMENT
THE FOLLOWING ARE CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE:
GOLF COURSE AND DRIVING RANGE
PLAYGROUND AND EXERCISE EQUIPMENT
WALKING IS RECOMMENDED USING SOCIAL DISTANCING, THANK YOU.
