Key things to remember:
- Leave no trace – littering, vandalism, or otherwise alerting the park is prohibited

- Obey park signage – follow the rules that are posted in parks and recreational trails
Pet owners and cyclists should also review information on Stoop and Scoop requirements, and the Recreational Code of Conduct, respectively.
