April 9, 2020 – West Bend, WI – Neighbors in West Bend and their four-legged friends have several questions regarding Rolfs Dog Park. According to West Bend Police the park is open (as of Thursday, April 9).
Earlier today, Governor Tony Evers issued an order closing State Parks as of Friday, April 10.
“I wanted to keep state parks open for the public to enjoy during this challenging time which is why outdoor activity is listed as an essential activity under the Safer at Home order. Unfortunately, growing difficulty with ensuring social distancing compliance, dwindling cleaning supplies and mounting trash are some of the challenges faced by our state parks staff. We have to address the growing public health and safety concern and protect Wisconsinites.”
Neighbors are reminded to respectfully adhere to social-distancing practices during this time.
