Yesterday Governor Murphy signed Executive Order 133 that will reopen golf courses and State parks for passive recreational activities effective Saturday, May 2 beginning at 6:00 a.m. The Executive Order details the activities that are permissive and prohibited at the State parks as well as parameters for visitors and employees. These same parameters apply to all county and municipal parks and counties and municipalities may impose additional restrictions.
In addition, the order establishes requirements on how golf courses can operate. Miniature golf courses, driving ranges, and other places of amusement remain closed pursuant to Executive Order 107.
The order also opens up County parks, except those county parks closed prior to the effective date of Executive Order 118, which was April 7. Those closed prior to the Executive Order 118 can reopen by order of the County.
