DAVIE, Fla. – Broward County has issued Emergency Order 20-08 which allows for the reopening of recreational facilities on a limited basis. This order allows for municipalities to be more restrictive than Broward County pertaining to facilities reopening and the guidelines for operation.

In addition, these facilities will have on-site monitoring. Activities like walking, running, jogging, and horseback riding are allowed, while the use of park buildings or park equipment such as picnic tables and chairs, playgrounds, campgrounds, public pools, and outdoor exercise equipment remains prohibited. These facilities will be open from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.
