City of Monte Vista closes outdoor public areas


MONTE VISTA - To ensure the safety of our community and staff, all playgrounds, tennis courts, basketball courts, and picnic areas in the City of Monte Vista were closed March 26. These closures fall in-line with the state’s Public Health Order issued Wednesday that orders all park amenities, including but not limited to: playgrounds, skate parks, basketball courts, tennis courts, picnic areas, public restrooms, and similar spaces conducive to public gathering are currently closed due to the risk of spread of COVID-19 (novel coronavirus). Residents may still enjoy walking paths, trails, and open spaces in the city, as long as they practice social distancing of at least 6 feet from other people.
