All county and city parks closed as of Monday

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. – Effective Monday, all Warren County Parks and Recreation Department and Bowling Green City Parks and Recreation Department Facilities will be closed until further notice.

This decision was made jointly by both county and city officials to ensure all measures are being taken to encourage social distancing and to proactively try all means to ensure public health at this time.  We hope that this action will help to reduce the spread of Covid-19 in our community.
