INDIANAPOLIS — New restrictions are in effect at Indy Park locations after the parks department said thousands of people were recently gathered inside Eagle Creek Park.
Last weekend, the parks department estimated 3,000-5,000 people used Eagle Creek Park.
So on Friday, Indy Parks announced that vehicles were not allowed inside Eagle Creek Park.
Not everyone got that memo, however. Saturday afternoon, about a dozen cars were parked outside the main entrance, blocking the ramp. Those vehicles were eventually towed.
The park is still open to pedestrians and cyclists, and you’re being encouraged to still visit, while maintaining appropriate social distancing.
“We at Indy Parks know that this is a challenging time for all of us, and we know that many people are visiting our parks for recreation, fitness, and really to just have a sense of normalcy and relaxation,” the agency said in a news release.
Most of the trails and outdoor space will remain open, but park officials warn people to stay away from closed facilities.
Indy Parks has also closed all of the dog parks, golf courses, indoor facilities, playgrounds and shelters in an effort to fight the spread of the coronavirus.
The parks department has not set a date to reopen most of the facilities.
