Parks and Trails Update:
Getting outside and recreating is essential to staying healthy during this time. While the Columbia Falls’ parks and trails remain open during the COVID-19 outbreak, we ask that you follow the personal hygiene guidelines prior to heading to trails – wash hands, carry hand sanitizer, do not use trails or parks if you have symptoms, cover your mouth and nose when coughing or sneezing. Observe the minimum recommended social distancing of six feet from other people. You are discouraged from using playgrounds as they are not cleaned and disinfected at this time. The tennis, pickleball and basketball courts are open as you bring your own equipment – maintain distancing and please pick up your trash.
Columbia Falls has a wide array of park properties to enjoy, each with a unique set of facilities and terrain.
