“City of Lansing parks are still open,” said Mayor of Lansing, Andy Schor. “All of our residents have at least one park within 10 minutes from their home,” he said.
“I encourage continued use of the Lansing River Trail and parks as a way to get outside and enjoy fresh air, while still practicing social distancing and using best judgment during the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Schor.
Mayor Schor has continued to empower the people of Lansing and help residents stay positive through all of the chaos that is happening. With that said, his main priority is to keep the people in Greater Lansing safe.
