Hamilton County Parks suspends remainder of major events through 2020


Hamilton County Parks and Recreation has canceled its major community events through the end of 2020 because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Park board members made the difficult decision to unanimously suspend all large park events out of a genuine concern for the health and safety of guests, volunteers, sponsors, park staff and the community,” Hamilton County Parks and Recreation Director Chris Stice stated. “Such popular park events as the Concerts in the Centerpiece at Coxhall Gardens, the Potter’s Bridge Fall Festival and the Little Haunt on the Prairie at Ghoul Creek Park, will unfortunately not be held this year, but dedicated park staff continue to prepare for the events’ welcome return in 2021.”

The department still plans to offer small-scale, nature-education programs, although reservations are required. The programs will have limited capacity and precautions will be put in place.

“During these ever-changing times and regardless of the uncertainties that lie ahead in 2020, Hamilton County Parks will continue to creatively serve our community’s needs through the implementation of smaller, onsite educational programs, as well as innovative online and virtual activities,” Stice stated.
