Mayor Joseph Ganim announced that people will be able to grill at Bridgeport city parks starting June 19.
Because of the coronavirus pandemic, Seaside Park and Beardsley Park will have a limited parking capacity of 30% in an effort to adhere to state and CDC guidelines, Ganim said.
Bridgeport parks are now open from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. The hours were previously reduced to 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Ganim is urging residents to be mindful of COVID-19 guidelines.
