Orange Plaza Paseo Extended to September 13

At their meeting on July 28, Orange City Council approved an extension of the Orange Plaza Paseo in the Old Towne Plaza District to Sunday, September 13, 2020.  The Paseo was originally approved earlier this month so that restaurants and other businesses in the Plaza could continue to operate under the California Health Orders, which eliminates indoor restaurant operations in order to reduce the spread of COVID-19.

On July 8, the City of Orange closed the 100 blocks of N. and S. Glassell St. to vehicle traffic to create the Orange Plaza Paseo, a pedestrian friendly space where restaurants and stores could set-up outdoor annexes and dining spaces. Several on-street parking locations on E. and W. Chapman Ave. and Orange St. were also isolated from vehicle traffic, which provided even more locations for outdoor dining space.

The extension of the Orange Plaza Paseo to September 13 means that there is more time to visit some of your favorite Old Towne Orange restaurants and shops.   For parking, use the Old Towne West Parking Structure on Lemon St. at W. Chapman Ave. For a quick stop to “grab and go,” there is are designated 15-minute pick-up zones for vehicles along Chapman Ave.

Patrons of the Orange Plaza Paseo are reminded to continue anti-COVID practices when enjoying the Paseo, including maintaining social distancing, wearing face coverings when not specifically eating, and washing their hands frequently.
