NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Tennessee State Parks are continuing to fight the spread of COVID-19. Face masks are required in all facilities at Radnor Lake State Park and the 55 other Tennessee State Parks are in effect starting August 10.

Face masks will be required when entering all facilities at Radnor Lake to protect park staff, park visitors and neighbors. Facilities that require face masks include Walter Criley Visitor Center, Barbara J. Mapp Aviary Education Center and East Lot restroom facilities.

Masks are also recommended while on trails when safe social distancing is difficult.

The department asks park-goers to please use good trail etiquette for the safety and comfort of our hiking community by doing the following:

  • Stay at least six feet away from trail users who are not in your party.
  • Walk single file whenever you encounter another hiker on any of the trails.
  • Be aware of narrow areas where social distancing is difficult, such as bridges, trailheads, and narrower areas on trails, such as Ganier Ridge, and wait in a safe space while allowing people to pass.

Friends of Radnor Lake and Radnor Lake State Park staff care about the health and safety of our visitors and neighbors. Please continue to be kind to each other, and thank you in advance for your support of these safety precautions at Radnor Lake!
