City of Santa Ana Closes All Park Amenities to Prevent Gatherings

Posted: April 6, 2020


SANTA ANA...The City of Santa Ana is closing all park amenities beginning Friday, April 3, due to the crowds that continue to gather in violation of statewide health orders.

Many park facilities were already closed, and the new policy expands that to include restrooms, soccer fields, basketball courts, picnic areas and more. All Parks, Recreation and Community Services classes and programs have been canceled except for the frozen meals program at the Santa Ana Senior Center.

These actions were authorized by the City Council's Proclamation of Local Emergency last month to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus.)

The following amenities will be closed until further notice:

• Playgrounds
• Soccer fields
• Restrooms
• Volleyball courts
• Tennis courts (including Cabrillo Tennis Center)
• Basketball courts
• Handball courts
• Community centers
• Skate parks
• Santa Ana Stadium
• Santa Ana Zoo
• Senior centers
• Parking lots
• River View Golf Course
• Exercise equipment areas
• Bleacher areas
• Baseball and softball fields
• Picnic areas and tables
• Fishing areas
• Archery range
• Lawn bowling greens
• Shuffleboard court

Santa Ana's outdoor, unenclosed park areas remain open to the public, but group sports and gatherings are prohibited, and people should stay at least 6 feet away from others.

California Gov. Gavin Newsom issued an executive order requiring non-essential businesses and services to close and residents to stay home except for essential activities.
