[ARCHIVED] Six Neighborhood Parks Partially Reopened

Be Smart, Do Your Part

To provide residents with access to park space during the “Safer at Home” Order, at this time, the City has partially reopened six neighborhood parks on a trial basis. Only turf areas and walking paths are open in the following parks:

  • Eastview Park (excluding the dog park)
  • Frank A. Vanderlip Park
  • Fred Hesse, Jr. Community Park
  • Ladera Linda Park
  • Robert E. Ryan Community Park
  • Upper Point Vicente Park (excluding the Rancho Caninos Dog Park)

The City encourages residents to participate in recreational outdoor activity in their neighborhoods. If you visit these parks, 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. City Staff, Park Rangers and law enforcement are monitoring these areas to ensure compliance with public health directives. 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.


  • Parking lots, restrooms, playgrounds, dog parks, basketball and tennis courts, baseball and soccer fields
  • Beaches, open space areas, the Palos Verdes Nature Preserve, and trails


  • Active sports or organized activities
  • Group gatherings or activities

The City is considering a comprehensive reopening plan of more of its parks and open space area over the coming days that is managed and responsible. To that point, the City recognizes the health and well-being of our residents and employees as a top priority, and is committed to keeping them safe. We urge all residents to follow the “Safer at Home” Order and only leave their homes for essential activities. We also urge the public to diligently practice physical distancing, as it is the most effective tool we have to fight this pandemic. We all must do our part to “flatten the curve.”
