County dog park, tennis courts to reopen Monday

The dog park and tennis courts at the Woodford County Park will reopen Monday, May 11, according to Versailles-Woodford County Parks and Recreation Director Rich Pictor. Pictor said the initial plan was to keep them open, but after large gatherings were reported in those areas, they were shut down a week or so into the quarantine. “So I say we’re reopening them, but if people continue to gather, then we’ll have to shut them back down,” he said. Pictor said social distancing should be observed in both areas, but acknowledged the tennis courts are less likely to pose a challenge in that area. “ … Just don’t stand next to each other in the dog park and stay on your court when playing tennis,” he said. As for wearing protective masks, Pictor said, “I’m not going to tell someone playing tennis to wear a mask, but (doing so at) the dog park probably wouldn’t hurt.” Pictor said the outdoor pickleball courts behind the pool and by the football stadium remain open, as does the disc golf course. “Pickleball and disc golf never closed, because we’ve had no issues there,” he said.
