CORAL SPRINGS, FL – Coral Springs officials began Friday to reopen playgrounds at city parks and urged parents to “wipe down high touch surface areas.”

The city said in a news release that crews will start reopening 38 playgrounds on Friday, a process that could take up to 24 hours.

Once opened, crews will clean and disinfect playgrounds, but it’s up to parents to wipe down areas where their children play, the news release said.
