Due to high winds from the storm, and falling trees and tree branches, for public safety reasons all City parks are closed for the duration of Friday, February 17, 2017.

Indoor after-school programs will remain open until the last child has been picked up by their parent or guardian.

Staff will re-evaluate this decision based on storm conditions on Saturday morning. If closures continue, information will be posted on the City’s website and social media.
