NEWPORT BEACH...Following a temporary closure, Newport Beach will close the Oceanfront Boardwalk on the Balboa Peninsula until further notice to encourage social distancing and limit the spread of COVID-19. 

Beginning Friday, April 3rd, around noon, crews reinstalled barriers along the Boardwalk's access points and post closure signs.

In addition, the Buck Gully hiking trail will be closed until further notice. While most City trails remain open, Buck Gully is a narrow trail that makes social distancing difficult.

The City will continue to monitor open spaces to ensure compliance with State and County orders. 

These measures are intended to reduce congestion and limit public gatherings to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 cases in Orange County. For the health and safety or our community, it is imperative that we all follow the Governor's stay-at-home, social distancing directive.
