2. All public restrooms are closed including the small restroom on Adams St. at Marktplatz.

3. The skate park and basketball pavilion at Old Fair Park are now closed.

4. We will no longer accept new, incoming RV reservations or tent campers for April 2-May 4, 2020. Only one restroom in the RV park will remain open for paying RV customers. Ice is no longer being sold at park headquarters until further notice. Showers are no longer available for purchase until further notice.
