Hello Morgan Hill!
Happy Summer!

It's a great time of year to enjoy fun, family, and friends! So many options, so little time, it seems. Lots of resources to check out what is available close by: Santa Clara County Parks & Recreation, Visit Morgan Hill, and the City's own Parks & Recreation options, like the Aquatics Center, mini-golf, and the several bike trails right in town.

It's also a great time to prepare for wildfires, emergencies, and disruptions to power services while none of those things are actually happening! As a reminder, visit the City's Do 1 Thing information page, PG&E's Public Safety Power Shutoff website, and Cal Fire's Ready for Wildfire website. Each one lays out steps to take to keep you and your family safe.
