Recreation, Parks, and Open Space

If you visit

RPV Beaches, Parks and Trails Open

In accordance with guidance from the County of Los Angeles, on May 13, the City of Rancho Palos Verdes reopened beaches, parks and trails, including the Palos Verdes Nature Preserve, with physical distancing required.

The City encourages residents to participate in recreational outdoor activity in their neighborhoods. If you visit these areas, please do so responsibly, be mindful of your interactions and wear a face covering. All visitors MUST practice physical distancing, staying 6 feet away from others not in their household. Face coverings are mandatory at beaches when out of the water and around others. Face coverings are required at trailheads, parking areas, and on any trails where there are other groups of people nearby. Children under age 2 and anyone who has trouble breathing should not wear face coverings.

City Staff, Park Rangers and law enforcement are monitoring these areas to ensure compliance with public health directives, and parking restrictions will be enforced. Pursuant to the City Council’s March 17 local emergency proclamation, the City may close these areas if rules are not observed by the public and conditions become unsafe.

Please note that some trails may remain closed, and some trails may have designated directions of travel to encourage physical distancing. Please check for up-to-date information on temporary trail closures and trail circulation plans. All park programming remains canceled until further notice. This includes all recreational activities, indoor and outdoor sports leagues, instructional courses, and group sessions/private events.

The Eastview Dog Park and the Rancho Caninos Dog Park are open. The tennis court at Upper Point Vicente Park and the paddle tennis courts at Ladera Linda Park are open. Both amenities have restrictions to comply with physical distancing and safety. Basketball courts at Ryan Park and Ladera Linda are open with restrictions.
