Closing public open spaces a step too far

Let me start out by saying that I love Waterford. I especially love the neighborhood in which I live. Herein lies the problem. I am a short walk from Stenger's Farm. For those not familiar with Stenger's, it is 95 acres of open land, trees, trails, and a pond. I walk my dogs there two or three times daily. Almost everyone you run into there becomes your friend, or at least a friendly acquaintance.

Recently, Waterford closed Stenger's Farm and the Civic Triangle because of the coronavirus. How can 95 acres of open land be more dangerous than walking dogs on the neighborhood streets? Waterford government please, we are smart enough to go to the Farm and maintain social distancing.
