One thing I know has been difficult for our family is that the playgrounds have been closed. I don't know about your active family but my kids could use a few hours on the monkey bars to use up some of their cooped-up energy!
Here are some updates on what playgrounds are currently open, and links so you can easily check on the status of locations that aren't yet open. As always if you head out to play, please be safe and take precautions as outlined by local and state government. Also, check local Museum locations opening during Phase 2!
