Kennesaw residents now have more places where they can get outside and enjoy the warm weather.

The city on Monday reopened the pavilions at Adams Park and the skatepark, dog park, pavilions and restrooms at Swift-Cantrell Park. Kennesaw said playgrounds, dugouts and exercise equipment at both parks remain closed.

Also opening at Adams Park will be the athletic fields for team practices. Kennesaw officials will set aside at least 30 minutes between uses to promote social distancing and to comply with Gov. Brian Kemp’s latest orders that prohibit gatherings of 25 or more people.
