COVID-19 Facility Closures & Precautions for Outdoor Spaces
Updated May 1, 2020

In an effort to slow the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19) and encourage social distancing, effective immediately all Brunswick Parks & Recreation playgrounds, athletic fields, restrooms, outdoor athletic courts, and the dog park are CLOSED until further notice. Signs will be posted at all affected locations.

Visitors to town owned parks are asked to adhere to current CDC social distancing recommendations (minimum of 6 feet distance from others).

The Town's 2.6 mile paved Androscoggin River Bicycle Path, multi-use trails, additional hiking trails and boat launches (excepting the Mill Street Canoe Portage) remain open with strict CDC social distancing rules in place. If you choose to go for a walk, or exercise outside, please maintain a distance of six feet from people who are not a part of your household.

The Senior Gardens along Industry Road remain open with strict CDC social distancing protocols required.

All public and private gatherings of more than 10 people are banned. If you see large groups gathering in parks, please contact the Department of Parks and Recreation at 725-6656 Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and the Brunswick Police Department at 725-5521 after hours and on weekends.
As previously announced, the Recreation Center, all Parks and Recreation programs, services, and activities remain closed or canceled.

We need your help to keep the parks safe to you and others. Please stay home if you are sick and practice good hygiene. Wash your hands after touching surfaces within the parks. Avoid touching your face. Sneeze or cough into a tissue or the inside of your elbow. Place garbage in trash receptacles.

Please check for new updates regarding closures and restrictions.

If you see something that needs attention, please call the Parks and Recreation Department at 725-6656.
