For people with four-legged friends, the off-leash dog areas at Black Rock Canal Park and Ellicott Creek Park are now open.

People looking to play basketball can now do so at any Erie County park.

Campers can make a reservation for a site at Sprague Brook Park. It will be open to camping this Saturday.
