Gatherings are required to be no more than a single household, and all first-come, first-serve rules apply (no trailer BBQs, bounce houses, amplified music, water apparatus or tables and chairs). Outdoor shelters, playgrounds and water play features remain closed, as does Micke Grove Zoo, Fun Town and Oak Grove Nature Center. Micke Grove's Japanese Garden, fishing, horseshoe pits and disc golfing are available at our parks. Stay tuned next week for more details on reopenings!

Well, we've got a little more good news... As San Joaquin County Parks and Recreation Division has re-open some regional and community parks effective May 18, we are now able to allow disc golf with baskets, plus barbecues and horseshoe pits are now available. Many other activities, such as playgrounds, covered picnic shelters and water play areas are still not accessible, but rest assured we will open them as soon as we're given the green light. Social distancing guidelines are still in place. As a reminder, Micke Grove and Oak Grove regional parks are open only until 6 p.m. and the usual first-come/first-serve restrictions apply (ie: no bounce houses, trailer BBQ, amplified sound, etc.).
