Due to the COVID-19 virus and current closures of our community centers and pavilions, Leon County is not accepting reservations at this time. All County passive parks and trails remain open to the public, and all bathroom facilities will continue to be aggressively cleaned according to the latest Center for Disease Control guidance. We appreciate your patience during this time and look forward to opening reservations again once the facilities re-open. For any questions, please call Leon County Parks and Recreation at 850-606-1470.
