Some Oregon state parks, recreation areas opening this week

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Oregon Gov. Kate Brown has announced a limited opening of some state parks, outdoor recreation facilities, and other areas for day use in a partial easing of restrictions put in place because of the coronavirus. The Oregon Parks and Recreation Department says the parks opening this week include: Tryon Creek in Portland; Willamette Mission north of Keizer; Mongold boat ramp at Detroit Lake; State Capitol State Park in Salem and Pilot Butte in Bend, which will open to pedestrians, among others. Officials say day-use will slowly return to other state parks starting next week. Brown says Oregonians should recreate responsibly to protect the health, wellness, and safety of themselves and others.
