The Cross Insurance Center is closed to the public, including the Maine Credit Union Box Office until further notice. Tickets for events can still be purchased via Ticketmaster.com and by calling 207-561-8333 during normal Box Office hours. Visit the Cross Insurance Center website for more details.
The City of Bangor does not recommend using playground equipment at this time. COVID-19 may live on some surfaces for up to three days, and there is no routine cleaning or disinfecting of these areas.
We recognize outdoor play is important for children, especially right now. Parks and trails remain open with the recommendation to avoid using any equipment. Additional guidelines are as follows:
- Do not use parks or trails if you are feeling sick.
- While on trails, warn others when passing, and step aside to let others pass.
- Keep six feet from others at all times. If this is not possible, users should find an alternate location or depart that space.
The health and safety of everyone in our community is our top priority. Thanks for your cooperation.
