City parks closing

Effective immediately, City of Marquette parks are closed to the public. This includes the closure of all City parks, playgrounds, park parking lots, the skate plaza, and Tourist Park. These measures are being taken to enforce social distancing guidelines and to prevent the congregation of park visitors. 

Measures include:

  • Effective today, the dog park at Tourist Park is closed for the season.
  • Effective Wednesday, all public bathrooms along the Multi-Use Path (the bike path) and in City parks will be closed.
  • Access to Presque Isle Park will be limited to vehicular traffic in the first loop. Please do not exit your vehicles when visiting Presque Isle Park.
  • The bike path will remain open at this time but may close at a future date if it becomes obvious that required social distancing guidelines are not being followed.

Residents seeking exercise are asked to consider walking in their neighborhoods. The Noquemanon Trail Network remains open for recreation but users are asked to adhere to social distancing guidelines and the NTN reminds users that trail groups are not currently able to maintain the trails to their usual caliber and users need to be more aware of their surroundings and look out for hazards as a result.

Please stay safe and continue to maintain at least six-foot distance between yourself and others when outside in Marquette. If social distancing guidelines are not being followed, further changes will be made to protect public health and ensure adherence to the “Stay Home, Stay Safe” executive order.
