Although beaches and many parks and recreation areas remain closed to prevent gatherings amid the coronavirus crisis, some parks reopened Tuesday, April 21, for what San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer calls “limited use.”
Among the parks that were reopened in the Point Loma-Ocean Beach area are Ocean Beach Community Park, Sunset Cliffs Natural Park, Collier Neighborhood Park, Dusty Rhodes Community Park, Bill Cleator Community Park and Point Loma Community Park. For the full list of parks, go to sandiego.gov/sites/default/files/park-status.pdf.
Activities such as walking, jogging and bicycling will be allowed. No active sports, organized activities or groups will be authorized. Physical distancing rules must be followed and face coverings are strongly recommended in accord with San Diego County directives. Parking lots will remain closed, and San Diegans are encouraged to visit the parks closest to them.
The mayor said future decisions, including whether the limited park reopenings will remain in effect or whether additional recreational facilities will be opened in a phased approach will depend on the ongoing monitoring of coronavirus cases and how closely physical distancing rules are followed.
