Mar 20, 2021

As spring rolls in and the sunshine lifts our spirits, our families are able to spend more time outdoors. In support of the mental and physical health of our families, the Saint Regis Mohawk Tribe Emergency Operations Center is pleased to announce partial re-opening of Generations Park. In order to keep our community safe, COVID restrictions are in place to ensure that the park facilities may remain open.

Hand sanitizer and wipes will be made available in the washroom building, and in other locations within the park.

Playground Area: Maximum occupancy 10 children within the fenced area at one time. Parents may be inside the play area with their children. Facilities staff will sanitize play structures once per day, increasing based on daily community activity levels.

Basketball Court: Maximum occupancy 10 people on each end of court at one time (20 total)

Travis Solomon Memorial Lacrosse Box: Maximum total Occupancy 25. Masks required. Lights will turn off at 8:30pm.

Washrooms: Open fully. PPE is made available within, including hand sanitizer and Clorox wipes. Bathrooms are locked at 8:00 p.m. each night.
