At this time, the Town of Hulbert has closed all playground equipment and the volleyball net in the town’s park. This decision was not made lightly, however, considering current events the town feels this is in the best interest of all citizens and visitors. While the playground equipment is closed, the park is not. This closure DOES NOT include the walking trail, grass areas, or horseshoe pits. We encourage people to get fresh air and let the children exert energy. However, we must also emphasize both Governor Stitt’s executive order of no groups larger than 10 people and the CDC recommendation to keep a 6-foot distance from others. Thank you for your cooperation. Please practice social distancing and wash your hands frequently.
