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.
