County parkland and lakes will be open for the public and for passive recreation only. Permitted activities include walking, running, biking, fishing and boating. Dog parks, playgrounds and restrooms will remain closed to the public. Sporting and field events, picnics, public gatherings and all active recreation will not be permitted in the parks at this time. All park patrons must abide by social distancing standards put in place by the governor. Social distancing requirements will be strictly enforced.

All four County golf courses will reopen to the public and operate at reduced capacity. Golf carts will not be available; all golfers will only be allowed to walk the course while maintaining social distancing standards. Golf course clubhouses, restrooms, pro shops and driving ranges will remain closed. Tee time bookings and payments can only be made online through the golf website at In-person bookings and payments will not be accepted. Each day will have limited capacity for golfers. Registration for tee times will open on April 30 at 6pm.

Following public safety measures, use of facemasks is strongly encouraged in the parks and golf courses during this time.

Amie Rukenstein
Amie Rukenstein is a very curious and enthusiastic resident of Hopewell Township who can never let a question go unanswered. Amie lives in Titusville with her husband, Ron, and numerous pets. She vastly enjoys frequent visits from her college-age children and their friends. In most aspects of her life, including with her new role at MercerMe, Amie is an organizer. With a full-time job and as a member of several non-profit organizations, she finds herself most often with her laptop open and excel and google on the screen. She does, however, leave the computer as often as possible to hike in Washington Crossing Park. Amie and Ron recently purchased what appears to be the oldest structure in Titusville. Known as The Titus Store at the corner of Church and River Drive and abandoned for 20 years, they look forward to restoring the building to its former glory.
