News Release-COVID-19 Update - Wednesday, April 22, 2020

Swansboro Municipal Park

Tennis Courts and Dog Park Re-open

Swansboro Parks and Recreation will re-open the tennis courts and dog park at Municipal Park.  If residents elect to use tennis courts and dog park facilities, they should be prepared to wipe down surfaces with recommended cleaning products before and after use. Because these products are limited in our area, Town staff cannot wipe down every surface between uses. Users are encouraged to bring their own wipes and cleaners for their use. We strongly encourage the public to practice physical distancing, limit in-person social interactions, and avoid spaces where people congregate in close quarters.
