[ARCHIVED] RPV Beaches, Parks and Trails to Reopen May 13

Reopening May 13

Reopening May 13

In accordance with guidance from the County of Los Angeles, the City of Rancho Palos Verdes will reopen beaches, parks and trails, including the Palos Verdes Nature Preserve, this Wednesday, May 13, 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 trails.rpvca.gov 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.

Still Closed

Dog parks, playgrounds, basketball and tennis courts, baseball and soccer fields, park buildings (park restrooms will gradually reopen as the capacity to implement frequent deep cleaning increases)
