Rockland County Parks Reopen

The Rockland County Division of Environmental Resources announced the reopening of County Parks effective 6:00 a.m., Friday, May 1, with the exception of H. Pierson Mapes Flat Rock Park in Hillburn, which will remain closed for the foreseeable future.  

Parks are open for walking only; social distancing and walking directional signs will be posted throughout the parks. Amenities and facilities such as restrooms, playgrounds, pavilions, picnic tables, all lawn areas, park benches, fishing piers, and dog runs are restricted for public use and will remain closed. Parking is permitted in designated parking lots, and reductions in the number of parking spaces will be instituted in some parks. Side street parking will also be restricted. The use of County Parks is intended for County residents only." 

 It is recommended that those who visit the parks wear a mask or face covering.  

Additionally, after a discussion with Rockland's Town Supervisors and Village Mayors, Town and Village parks, which are not already open, will be opening this weekend. 

The Division of Environmental Resources will not accept any new park permit requests for the foreseeable future. Residents can visit the County social media pages for County Park updates. 

Division staff will monitor the parks and report any violations of social distancing or gatherings to the Rockland County Sheriff's Office. Park openings will be reevaluated if the public fails to adhere to proper social distancing guidelines.
