(ORLEANS) - The Orleans Police Department would like to remind park patrons to be courteous to other park patrons and respect the park grounds by putting trash and litter in its proper place.
The overall goal is making sure the Orleans Town Square Park area is a clean, safe environment for everyone's enjoyment.
Park goers are reminded that the war memorial honors those who have served our country and is a center piece of the park worthy of respect.
The Orleans Police Department would also like to remind park goers that bicycles, skateboards, inline skates and scooters are prohibited inside the park grounds. Bike racks are available on both the north and south sides of the park.
Parents are reminded that young children should not be sent to the park alone. Children should not play or swim in the fountain due to the risk of electrocution and other health and safety issues.
