COVID-19 Park Schedules and Rules

Parks and Recreation has designed a phased plan to reopen trails, parks, and services aligned with New Mexico Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham’s extended public health emergency order and the New Mexico Department of Health guidelines.  Keeping trails open and re-opening more areas depends on all of us working together to create a safe environment.

Here are the recommended guidelines for using trails and the specialty parks that are now offering modified open sessions:

  • Keep  a minimum of 6 ft. apart from other players. No physical contact.
  • Wear a face covering or masks (gloves required in RC Airport).
  • Players must use their own equipment.
  • Avoid sharing food, drinks, or towels.
  • To observe social distancing, warn other users of your presence and step aside to let others pass. 
  •  Practice safe hygiene – wash hands, carry hand sanitizer, cover your mouth & nose while sneezing or coughing. 
  • Participants must adhere to session times and enter/exit in designated areas.
  • Avoid gatherings. Arrive 10 minutes max before session and vacate area when done with session.
  • Participants must dispose of their trash.

Restrooms/water fountains will not be available. Come prepared with your own water.

These guidelines are subject to change based upon changes in directive from the Governor’s Office and NM Dept. of Health. Parks & Recreation Dept. Staff does not make these guidelines but may enforce them as needed.
