James City County is planning on opening recreation services and parks on Monday.

Officials said the move is allowed in Gov. Ralph Northam’s executive orders.

“Please help us keep these services available to the community – participants must maintain a social distance of at least 6 feet and groups of more than 10 will be asked to separate,” according to a news release from the county.

So, here you go:

  • James City County Marina, 2054 Jamestown Road: the Marina Store service window will open daily from 11 a.m. – 4 p.m. for fuel sales, payments and other Marina transactions.
  • Chickahominy Riverfront Park, 1350 John Tyler Highway: The campground will open to stays of 14 days or longer. The walking trail, boat ramp, fishing pier and lots of open space are also open and available.
