Published on : Friday, October 30, 2020

Santa Clara is set to reopen its parks and playgrounds for the first time since its closure in mid-March during the peak of the COVID-19 pandemic and the state novel coronavirus emergency health order. The city Park & Recreation staffs has been power-washing and sanitizing equipment and surfaces ahead of reopening. Hand sanitizer stations and health and safety signage have been installed at all playgrounds.


The city also launched a “Play It Safe, Santa Clara” outreach campaign to emphasize the importance of protocols in preventing the spread of COVID-19. Santa Clara officials stated that Park visitors are now responsible for following the park rules and adhering to playground capacity limits, wearing face coverings, hand sanitizing and following all state and county health and safety protocols.


Mayor Lisa Gillmor added that authorities know the importance of play for the health and wellness of Santa Clarans, and are excited that new health orders allow the city to reopen playgrounds for the community to enjoy. She mentioned that with so many parents at home with their children doing remote learning, it is even more important to get outside and let kids be kids, but also by doing everything safely.
