“The Outdoors and sunshine are such strong factors in Fighting viral infections, that a 2009 study of the extraordinary success of outdoor hospitals during the 1918 influenza epidemic suggested that during the next pandemic we should encourage ‘the public to spend as much time outdoors as possible.” — Zeynep Tufecki
In the short run, closing parks may seem prudent, when our hospitals are overrun and we are trying so hard to curb the spread of COVID-19. But in the medium to long run, it will turn out to be a mistake that backfires at every level. While it’s imperative that people comply with social-distancing and other guidelines to fight this pandemic, shutting down all parks and trails is unsustainable, counterproductive, and even harmful.

Go outside.  The authorities want you to shelter in place because you are easier to control, that way.
