**UPDATE: Effective 3/28/20, the Happy Tails Dog Park is also closed**

To ensure the safety of our community and staff, all playgrounds, tennis courts, basketball courts, and picnic areas in the City of Brighton will be closed as of today, March 26. These closures fall in-line with the state’s Public Health Order issued on Wednesday that orders all park amenities, including but not limited to: playgrounds, skate parks, basketball courts, tennis courts, picnic areas, public restrooms, and similar spaces conducive to public gathering are currently closed due to the risk of spread of COVID-19 (novel coronavirus). 

Residents may still enjoy walking paths, trails, and open spaces in the city, as long as they practice social distancing of at least six feet from other people.

Thank you for your cooperation and understanding during this time. For more information about our trails and open spaces, visit
