Notice: Lyons Parks are Closed Until Further Notice


In an effort to reduce the spread of COVID-19 and ensure the safety of its residents, visitors, employees, and volunteers, Lyons parks facilities will be closed, beginning Saturday, July 18, 2020. Patrons will still be allowed to use the trail system and access the river, but group gatherings, picnicking, pop-ups, and congregating along river will not be permitted. Camping and shelter reservations will be honored. Read Full Release >>

Face Coverings


Always bring a face covering when visiting open space. Starting May 9, anyone older than 12 years old is required to wear a face covering anytime they cannot maintain six feet of distance from others outside of their household.
Learn more.
This means, when visiting open space trailheads and/or passing others on trails, if visitors are at least 6 feet away from others they do not need to wear a face covering over their nose and mouth. However, if visitors reach 6 feet distance to someone else on the trail, they must put the covering snugly back over their nose and mouth. Remember to always bring a face covering!
Please review and learn how the State's or Boulder County's Stay at Home Order may impact you.

Scams
Cybersecurity researchers have reported a wave of fake COVID-19 tracker maps, aimed to infect computers with malware when opened. Hackers and scammers' tactic is to capitalize on people's fear of Coronavirus, by disguising malware ploys as COVID-19-related information. Please be extra cautious of scams during this event.
