Dakota County Parks is committed to the health and safety of our public and staff during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Almost all Dakota County park and trail amenities are free, open and available, but with some changes to procedures. Changes to our services are detailed on each amenity's page.
- Masks are required for visitors age 2 years and older in county buildings starting Aug. 11. Minnesota Department of Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommend everyone wear a mask in public indoor settings in areas with substantial or high transmission of COVID-19.
- Stay 6 feet apart from others.
- Use hand sanitizer or wash your hands.
- Stay at home if you have experienced a fever or cold symptoms in the last seven days or been in close contact with someone who has been diagnosed or is suspected to have COVID-19.
