KALAMAZOO, Mich. — The Kalamazoo County Parks system will be open on a limited basis beginning May 6.

The limited reopening mainly will allow access to walking and bike trails, boat ramps, and shoreline fishing daily from 7 a.m. till dark.

Many part amenities will remain closed:

  • Playgrounds
  • Campgrounds
  • Dog parks
  • Disc golf course
  • Radio-controlled flying field
  • Picnic shelters and picnic tables

“Adherence to social distancing and remaining at least six feet from people outside the individual’s household to combat COVID-19 is critical,” said parks director David Rachowicz in a release.

Staff will monitor use of the parks for future evaluation.
