Temporary closures at William F. Hayden Park on Green Mountain
Published on April 17, 2020
Lakewood Parks will begin monitoring the Rooney Rd. and Florida Dr. trailheads to William F. Hayden Park on Green Mountain, 1000 S. Rooney Rd., beginning April 18. Rangers will close the trailhead and parking areas temporarily when they are at capacity in an effort to reduce overcrowding at the popular regional park. Vehicles will not be allowed to line up along Rooney Road or Alameda Parkway. Pedestrian entry by foot or bike could also be limited at trailheads during a temporary closure. Rangers recommend visitors to the park avoid peak visitation times from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Message boards will be provided alerting potential visitors of trailhead status as well as on Twitter @TrailsLakewood and the city's trail conditions site Lakewood.org/TrailConditions.
