 Effective Saturday, March 12, 2022, mask use is optional at Portland Parks & Recreation (PP&R) public spaces. PP&R wants to keep you safe in our programs, parks, trails, and facilities. We recognize that people will have varying comfort levels with guideline changes. Some of us may embrace the lifting of the mask mandate while others may prefer to continue to wear face coverings. Please be aware, respectful, and considerate of people’s individual choices.

  • Masks are encouraged where physical distancing is not possible.
  • Masks may be required at events that have a large number of people in attendance.
  • Guidance and protocols around COVID-19 may change depending on circumstances.

Portland Parks & Recreation and the City continue to follow guidance from public health authorities and direction from elected officials regarding policies and protocols related to COVID-19.
