Your Health & Safety Requires
Additional Closures

April 6, 2020

Dear Residents,

We need your help in following new health and safety recommendations. As we navigate the unknown, our priority continues to be the health and safety of El Dorado Hills residents, and EDHCSD staff. By following recommendations, we can make challenging, yet informed public health decisions. National Recreation and Parks Association (NRPA) , is encouraging park and recreation departments to temporarily close playgrounds and play structures to reduce the chances of spreading COVID-19.

"Given the current situation and the guidance from public health officials on physical distancing, limiting in-person social interactions, avoiding spaces where people congregate in close quarters, and the concerns around transmission of the virus being spread through surfaces, we believe that playgrounds and play structures should  temporarily  close in an effort to reduce community spread." -- NRPA

Today, more than ever, we need the community to work together to help keep El Dorado Hills Parks open. You can do this by following local, state, Federal and CDC health guidelines, as well as practicing social distancing at all parks and open spaces.

We know that access to nature through parks and green spaces offer important physical and mental health benefits. Following public health guidance, and practicing physical distancing is important because we want these spaces to continue to be accessible.

To protect residents and staff, and to slow the rate of transmission of COVID-19 in our region, El Dorado Hills Community Services District (EDHCSD) has implemented the following closures for public safety:

Closures Effective April 7, 2020

  • All Playgrounds
  • Community Park Dog Park

For the health & safety of all, we ask that you respect these temporary closures.
