May 7, 2020, Governor Kate Brown held a press conference on Oregon’s reopening plan where the newest version of “Reopening Oregon: Details on Restarting Public Life and Business” was discussed. You can find that document at: Reopening-Oregon-Details-on-Restarting-Public-Life-and-Business.
City Parks’ restrooms and parking lots were reopened this week. Although parking lots are now open, specific areas of the park are still closed per Governor’s orders – playgrounds, pools, skate parks, and sports courts, and are signed appropriately. Restrooms are open at all city parks, except Easy Manor, as it remains closed since it is primarily a playground.
