As the Director of Emergency Services, City Manager Hans Uslar signed a new emergency order last week that clarifies the status of city parks, playgrounds, and ball fields. While open space parks remain open during the pandemic where social distancing can be maintained, playgrounds, ball fields and courts were closed per County and State health guidelines. As we have progressed through the COVID-19 shelter in place, some of these restrictions have changed. Beginning December 4, the following playgrounds will reopen with some restrictions: Casanova Oak Knoll Park, Hilltop Park, Montecito Park, and Via Paraiso Park. Dennis the Menace Playground will remain closed.
