Stewart Park Renovation
The City of Beaumont prides itself on offering parks and recreation services that address the needs of every citizen. To keep up with the growth of the city and further enhance the quality of life for our residents, Beaumont has begun a complete renovation to Stewart Park.

Renovations include a concrete walking trail throughout the length of the park, picnic/shade pavilions, two multi-generational and inclusive playgrounds, a gaga ball court, enhancements to the current skate park and basketball courts, increased parking facilities, connection of the park across Ninth and Tenth Streets, athletic fields and a new bandshell with modern sound and lighting equipment.

Renovation of the 11-acre park is expected to be complete by end of summer 2022. Beaumont is excited to enhance the quality of life downtown with the revitalization of Stewart Park providing a dynamic destination for families of all ages and a vibrant space for community events!

Flex Alerts
Voluntary calls for consumers to conserve electricity
During the summer season, the California Independent System Operator (ISO) will issue Flex Alerts to encourage electricity conservation, reduce stress on the grid, and avoid power outages.

A Flex Alert is typically issued in the summer when extremely hot weather pushes up energy demand as it reaches available capacity. This usually happens in the evening hours when solar generation is going offline and consumers are returning home and switching on air conditioners, lights, and appliances.

If demand outstrips supply after Flex Alerts and other measures are taken, the ISO could again order utilities to begin rotating power outages. That would extend available power supplies and guard against longer and more extensive disruptions while protecting high-voltage transmission lines from damage.

As California’s ability to store solar and wind energy with batteries or other technology continues to increase, the crucial evening hours will be less challenging. But for now, concerted action to conserve is our most effective way of keeping the grid working for everyone.
Cool Center at the CRC
Residents needing to escape the daytime heat are encouraged to visit the Beaumont Cool Center hosted at the Albert A. Chatigny Community Recreation Center (CRC), located at 1310 Oak Valley Parkway. The Cool Center opens during normal business hours when temperatures exceed 97 degrees.
Attendees are required to wear a face mask and maintain social distancing while at the Cool Center. For additional Cool Center locations, hours, and tips on how to protect yourself from heat-related illnesses, please visit www.capriverside.org.
Holiday Trash Collection
As we approach the 4th of July holiday, we would like to remind our residents that the sale, use, and storage of fireworks is prohibited in the City of Beaumont (BMC 9.41).
This year, law enforcement and fire agencies throughout Riverside County are enforcing zero tolerance for illegal fireworks with the “If you light it, we’ll write it” campaign launched by the Riverside County Board of Supervisors. Persons caught with illegal fireworks are subject to arrest, citation, and/or fines ranging from $1,000 - $5,000.
A report by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) found a 50 percent increase in deaths and injuries from fireworks-related incidents in 2020, compared to 2019.
  • At least 18 people died from fireworks-related incidents in 2020, compared to 12 reported for the previous year.
  • About 15,600 people were treated in hospital emergency departments for fireworks injuries in 2020. There were about 10,000 ER-treated fireworks injuries in 2019.
Aside from injury, fireworks can cause devastating wildfires that threaten lives, homes and wildlife especially in times of drought as Riverside County is currently experiencing. Anyone who causes a fire using fireworks, intentional or by accident, may be held financially responsible for all fire suppression costs.
We encourage everyone to leave the fireworks to the professionals and join Beaumont for a 16-minute firework display on Sunday, July 4 at Stewart Park. For a listing of other shows and events throughout the area Click Here.
Please do NOT call 911 to report firework activity, contact our 24/7 business line at
951-769-8500 and be prepared to provide an address or specific location of activity.
Since 1985, America has celebrated July as the nation’s official Park and Recreation Month. Created by the National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA), Park and Recreation Month specifically highlights the vital and powerful role local park and recreation professionals, such as our staff at Beaumont, play in building stronger, more vibrant and more resilient communities all across the country.

Parks are at the center of so many experiences and memories — moments that park and recreation professionals help make happen. Our local parks are often our first experiences in nature, our introduction to a favorite hobby or physical activity. They are places to gather with friends and family, spaces to celebrate life’s special moments, spots of respite and healing, sites that connect us with essential community services, and so much more.
Beaumont Launches Agents of Discovery App to Celebrate
Parks and Recreation Month in July
Over 20 counties and cities, including the City of Beaumont, have joined forces in an initiative to raise awareness about the benefits of parks and recreation throughout California and to raise the status of parks and recreation as an essential community service.

Through Agents of Discovery®, an educational platform that allows educators and interpretive staff to create, edit and publish their own augmented-reality, interactive games that engage visitors with their facility, these partners are launching the Parks Make Life Better Campaign. During these unprecedented times, it is beneficial to give parents the digital tools to give their kids a fun and safe educational environment to discover and learn!

The Parks Make Life Better Campaign runs for the entire month of July, and encourages young explorers, or “Agents”, to visit as many participating locations as possible to earn real-life and digital rewards. Kids and their families can participate in the campaign by downloading the Agents of Discovery mobile app to access free “Missions” (games) at each of the participating locations. Missions are completed by solving educational “Challenges” (questions) created by the site’s interpreters in order to learn about local ecosystems, culture, and history.

To download the FREE Agents of Discovery app, go to Google Play or the App Store.
