Attica Closes Municipal Parks
Written by Dan Fischer on March 31, 2020
The Village of Attica in the best interests of its residents and community has closed the Municipal Playground located at Main Street and North Pearl Street and the Village Park on Exchange Street with the exception of the parks Walking Path.
With the guidelines of the Center for Disease Control, the New York State Department of Health and the Wyoming County Health Department the decision was made to close these facilities until further notice. With the ever-increasing spread of the COVID-19 virus and the increasing number of active cases and deaths it is imperative that we protect the public and slow the spread of this epidemic.
The municipal playground at Main and North Pearl St has been taped off with signage. The Village Park on Exchange Street has the entrance and exit barricaded with signage. The only exception is use of the walking path, with the strong recommendation of social distancing of at least 6 feet. Anyone utilizing the walking path will be allowed to park street side and enter the park by foot.
Once the epidemic has been declared under control the Village will sanitize all park equipment and facilities prior to reopening to the general public
