In accordance with current State and County health guidelines, our parks, including the Dog Park at Yorba Park are open for public use, weather permitting.  The public is encouraged to utilize the open space and walking trails to stay healthy, both physically and mentally. Please continue to practice social distancing by staying at least six feet away from those who are not part of your household.  Wash your hands frequently and do not use our parks if you are ill or experiencing COVID-19 symptoms. Group gatherings are prohibited.

Tot lots and outdoor fitness equipment are open. Please remember to maintain social distance and avoid over crowding. Basketball, volleyball, and handball courts are closed. Tennis courts are open for singles and household use only.  

2.  Can I book a City facility or picnic pavilion for an event?

Current State and County health guidelines do not allow for gatherings outside of your household. Park facilities designed for gatherings, such as community rooms, the Sports Center at Grijalva Park, and group picnic pavilions are closed.  No permits, regardless of date, are being issued for social gatherings until further notice.  Please continue to check the City’s website and social media posts for updates to facilities and services.  As health guidelines change, and allow for gatherings to continue, the City will evaluate options to comply with the guidelines.
