Out of an abundance of caution amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the public playgrounds and parks in Remsen are closed effective immediately, until further notice. The City of Remsen does not have an effective way to fully sanitize the playground equipment to keep everyone safe. We need to discourage groups of people from congregating and with the warmer temperatures, closing the parks is a necessary precaution that needs to be taken. This is not a decision that was taken lightly, please know that it was done with the safety of the public in mind. The walking trail will remain open during this time.
