If your entertainment for the weekend doesn’t include walking or running on one of Addison’s public trails – it should! The Town of Addison is encouraging staying healthy and getting fresh air during this time of social distancing by placing fun visuals on its trails.
The innovative parks department at the Town of Addison has put social distancing decals along park trails to remind people to keep safe distances during this pandemic. These stickers say, “Help reduce COVID-19 Social Distance 6’ Dots are spaced 6’ for your reference #Addison Outdoors.”
So, when you are out walking your dog, riding your bike, pushing your stroller or getting your morning jog in, be sure to maintain at least one sticker distance (or six feet) apart from your fellow neighbors on the trails.
In order to further decrease the risk of spreading COVID-19, Addison has temporarily closed its dog parks. The parks will be back open when Addison reopens the Town buildings on April 6. During this time, the parks department will be taking this time to do needed maintenance on the turf so it will be healthier when it does open again.
The Town of Addison first made its name by being a small town producing enormous events. The 4.4-mile Town of 15,000 people gets enormous attention each year when it hosts Addison Kaboom Town!, one of the largest fireworks shows in the nation. It also has more than 180 restaurants, many of which are currently offering takeout and delivery options for the community to stay safe.
When you go out on Addison’s trails or get food to-go this weekend, be sure to post on social media using the hashtags #AddisonOutdoors and #AddisonStrong. Stay safe, everyone!
