LATEST COVID-19 GUIDELINES FOR USING MONTPELIER'S PARKS:
- STAY HOME: If you don’t feel well, have been exposed to someone who has tested positive for COVID-19, or have traveled from anywhere and haven't quarantined, please stay home.
- KEEP YOUR DISTANCE: Give people who aren’t members of your household six feet or more of space AND make sure your pets do the same. Please note that it is difficult to maintain 6 feet of distance while climbing the tower, and you may need to let others come down first before entering.
- BRING A FACE COVERING: In case you encounter other people and stop to chat (from a safe distance), bring a face covering.
- LEASH YOUR DOG: Dogs are required to be on-leash at ALL times in all parks except for Hubbard Park. Only let your dog off-leash in Hubbard Park if you can keep them under strict voice control and can leash them quickly if others are approaching. Please refer to the Canine Code of Conduct for more information.
- KEEP IT CHILL: As always, be smart and cautious when recreating outside.
These guidelines for recreating are informed by the Vermont Department of Forest, Parks and Recreation.

This past spring with the help of many hands, we planted over 1,000 trees in Montpelier’s parks and along the Siboinebi Bike Path. These trees were planted primarily within riparian areas in an effort to improve the local watershed health. Once their roots establish, the trees will provide valuable flood prevention, erosion control, and native habitat. This project was funded by grants from Vermont Fish and Wildlife's Watershed Grant program, and the Lake Champlain Basin Program, funded by the New England Interstate Water Pollution Control Commission. We feel very fortunate to be supported for such important work!
