(JEFFERSON COUNTY, COLORADO) – These are stressful times and getting outdoors for exercise and peace of mind is how many Coloradoans cope. When people are stressed, anxious, and socially isolated – as we are right now due to the COVID-19 pandemic – access to parks, trails, and natural areas is more important than ever.
As more community members get outside, we’re seeing some concerning activities and potentially dangerous behaviors. We have every hope of keeping Jeffco parks and trails open for your enjoyment. To do this, we need your help.
We ask that you follow these requirements and recommendations for the greater good of our community and to allow park rangers, sheriff’s deputies, first responders and other parks team members to do their jobs safely and better serve you.
By following these essential health guidelines, you can reduce the strain on our public places and the risk of spreading the coronavirus:
Let’s keep Jeffco safe and active,
