Some City of Gadsden Facilities to Reopen May 1st

Gadsden, AL- As the City of Gadsden carefully watches the COVID-19 Pandemic and follows the orders from Governor Ivey and the Alabama Public Health Department we are taking steps to safely open some city facilities in a limited way. We are also rescheduling some events that were postponed due to the COVID-19 Pandemic. 

Our first phase of reopening facilities will begin Friday, May 1st. In order to keep staff and customers safe, these facilities will use the retail reopening framework established by the State of Alabama. On May 1st, the Coosa Landing Store will open with customer limits, restricted hours, and limited restroom access. All tournaments scheduled for Coosa Landing will operate under strict social distancing and group gathering restrictions. Noccalula Falls Campground will also open May 1st, with strict social distancing, limited hours for the Campground Office, pool area closed, and campsite rentals will be spaced to ensure adequate distancing between sites. Noccalula Falls Park will reopen May 6th. The train will not run and the petting zoo area will be closed. The gift shop will be open with limited hours and access. The Local Farmers Market at the 5th Street Market will open May 8th to curbside, drive-through, and online sales. 

Twin Bridges Golf Course will reopen to the public on May 1st. The clubhouse and grill be closed to the public and golfers limited to one per cart and other social distancing restrictions will be enforced by the staff.
