At the April 21, 2020 Board meeting, the Lee County Commissioners approved a phased-in approach to begin re-opening Lee County-owned trails and some services beginning April 22, 2020.

Below is an interactive map to help you locate those that have re-opened. A list is also available below the map. As locations are re-opened, remember to use best practices to stop the spread of COVID-19. These include social distancing, staying home as much as possible, proper handwashing, limiting groups to less than 10 – and staying calm, kind and safe. The map and the list will be updated as decisions are made to re-open locations or update services.
