MADISON (WKOW) -- The City of Whitewater has created additional space to help people support downtown restaurants while enjoying their meals safely.
The city will barricade the section of 1st Street between Main and Center. This space will be treated like a local park, following park hours of 6 a.m. to 12 a.m. and all park rules will be enforced.
The temporary park will have picnic tables for visitors to sit and enjoy a meal from a downtown restaurant. The picnic tables will be spaced out and
visitors will be expected and encouraged to continue practicing social distancing and keep six feet apart from others in this space.
All visitors are expected to clean up after themselves, throw away garbage and recycling and be sure no food is left behind. Much like other parks, alcohol will not be permitted.
The temporary park will be open through Saturday, October 31, 2020 or until weather permits.
