Parks

Anaheim parks have remained open throughout the coronavirus pandemic. 

They have provided much-needed open space for everyone seeking to get out of the house for fresh and exercise. 

When visiting a park, we suggest you bring hand sanitizer or hand wipes, especially for kids playing on shared playground equipment. 

Remember to wear a face mask and keep 6 feet away from others.

Current state guidelines allow for up to three households to gather. So if you're enjoying a special gathering at a park, it's safest to keep it small.

As the weather gets better, and we see more people at our parks, we want to remind you of a few common things that aren't allowed:

  • Tents or canopies larger than 10 feet by 10 feet
  • Bounce houses
  • Generators
  • Loud speakers

A complete list of park rules can be found here.

Since the start of the pandemic, we've had to put on hold the renting of park space due to restrictions on gatherings. With the county now in the state's orange Tier 3, we're making plans to resume park space reservations in the coming weeks.


Sports

Youth and adult sports are allowed with modifications in Anaheim and Orange County. Find a full list of allowed sports here

The state has also put out a helpful FAQ that can be found here

As we welcome the return of sports this spring, we must continue to be smart about how we interact with others and fight COVID in all that we do. That means continue to social distance as much as possible, wear face masks when appropriate and wash or sanitize hands often.
