Playgrounds, the skate park, pickleball courts, and tennis courts are open as of June 15th, 2020.
Restrooms and portable toilets are available at Parisi Park, Taylor Park and Orchid Heights Park. All other restrooms are closed at this time.
You are welcome to continue to enjoy trails and park spaces, including the dog parks. Outdoor recreation in the form of walking, biking, hiking, and running can provide valuable physical and mental health benefits. Basketball, ultimate frisbee, soccer, football, and other contact and team sports are expressly prohibited in the Safer at Home Order.
When using park trails and spaces, please continue to take all possible actions to reduce further spread of COVID-19. Maintain 6 feet of space between yourself and any other people and limit group size to 10 or less. If you do not feel well or someone in your house is sick, please stay home. At the dog park, wear gloves or put a bag over your hand to open and close the gate.
Summer recreation program enrollment has begun! For more information and to sign up, select the recreation page from the red bar on the left side of the page.
We are planning for summer activities to proceed. Depending on guidance or orders in place at the time of a program, the class made be modified or cancelled. If the Recreation Division cancels a course, the program fee will be refunded.
Normally in the spring the City works with large volunteer groups to clean parks, trails and conservancy lands. With the Safer at Home guidelines those volunteer groups are not able to do this critical work. We are asking for our residents to assist. We encourage anyone out enjoying our public lands to help beautify parks or conservancy areas. Although we typically ask that users stay on the trails, if you are able to safely reach litter you can leave the trail to do so. We thank you in advance for helping us beautify the Good Neighbor City.
