This morning (Friday, March 27, 2020), the City of Midland decided to temporarily close one of the city's most popular parks.

According to NewsWest 9, Dennis the Menace Park was closed in an effort to "promote social distancing" as stated in a press release from the city.

The park has continued to be a popular location for families to gather but because of the coronavirus pandemic, the City of Midland felt the need to temporarily close it for that reason.

As of now, all other parks are still open.
