Palm Coast - The City of Palm Coast is following the example of our local partners at the Flagler County Emergency Management Office. Based on their recent recommendations, we will be closing down all playgrounds, park pavilions, and restrooms to the public starting Friday, March 20, until further notice.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) continues to recommend limiting public gatherings of 10 or more people. This recommendation does not apply to the day to day operation of organizations such as schools, institutes of higher learning, or businesses. This recommendation is made in an attempt to reduce introduction of the virus into new communities and to slow the spread of infection in communities already affected by the virus. This recommendation is not intended to supersede the advice of local public health officials.

In support of the CDC's recommendations and from those of our partners, all City-run activities at city facilities will remain cancelled until further notice. The Palm Coast Community Center, Palm Coast Tennis Center, Palm Harbor Golf Club, and Palm Coast Aquatics Center will also remain closed to the public through this time. At this present time, park open spaces and trails will remain open for normal operations.

Recommendations are rapidly changing. The City of Palm Coast will continue to closely monitor and follow recommendations from the CDC, as well as the Flagler County Emergency Management Office, Flagler County Health Department, and Florida Department of Health.
