Young Naturalist Camps and youth fishing camps have been canceled for

The health and safety of visitors is Medina County Park District’s
number-one priority. To help avoid the spread of the COVID-19 virus, we
ask park visitors to:

●       Stay home if you feel ill.
●       Keep a six-foot distance between yourself and others.
●       Cover your mouth and nose when you sneeze or cough.

Visitors utilizing the park district’s open-air shelters must adhere to
public health orders issued by Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine and the Ohio
Department of Health that limit gatherings to fewer than 10 people. Park
district rangers will enforce these orders and require larger groups to
disperse.

Decisions regarding the opening and closure of park sites are based on
continued developments in the COVID-19 crisis, as well as
recommendations from the Medina County Health Department and Ohio
Department of Health.
