Nature

During these challenging times, getting outside and enjoying nature while practicing social distancing helps with stress relief, boredom and one's physical and mental health.

Please Note: All playground structures within the Town of LaSalle are CLOSED at this time. In addition, the skateboard park at the Vollmer Complex, pickleball courts, tennis courts and basketball courts are closed.

Parks and trails remain open. 

Social Distancing in Public Parks and Trails:

  • Do not use parks or trails if you are exhibiting symptoms
  • Follow the World Health Organization's guidelines on personal hygiene prior to visiting parks or trails
