GREENE COUNTY — A popular Greene County park reopened last week, but officials are taking extra measures to make sure visitors don’t overcrowd it and break social distancing recommendations.
Greene County Parks and Trails reopened the Narrows Reserve to the public on May 8, but drivers will notice signs at the entrance and in the parking lot that say drivers, who park outside of designated parking spots, could be towed at their own expense.
"I don't think it's fair. There's not a lot to do right now and there's not a lot of places to park so it doesn't seem fair", said Megan who talked with News Center 7's Gabrielle Enright.

"I understand the frustration but they're doing it for a reason. If they get towed, they get towed. That's the rules", said Renea Ashcraft of Kettering.
Greene County Parks and Trails has cancelled all of its programs, events and rentals from now until June 15. Summerfest, a popular concert, has been rescheduled for September 13.
Park Officials have encouraged visitors to practice social distancing and have closed the following until further notice:
- GCPT headquarters to the public
- Scout Dog Park at Pierce Park
- Lovely Nature Playscape at the Russ
- All playgrounds
- Fitness course at Hobson Freedom Park
- All public restrooms and water fountains
