COVID-19 Update to Our Orinda Parks and Rec Family:

The most recent Health Order from Contra Costa County supersedes the June 5, 2020, Order of the Health Officer directing all individuals to socially distance (“Prior Order”). This Order continues to restrict most activity, travel, and governmental and business functions to essential needs and to the Outdoor Activities and Outdoor Businesses that the prior Order allowed to resume.  But in light of progress achieved in slowing the spread of COVID-19 in the County of Contra Costa (the “County”), and in accordance with a variance obtained by the County from the State of California on June 9, 2020, which allows the County to move more quickly, or in a different order, through Stage 2 of the State of California’s COVID-19 roadmap to recovery, this Order eases restrictions to allow additional businesses to resume or begin operating, subject to conditions set forth in applicable industry guidelines issued by the State. This Order also modifies restrictions that applied to outdoor recreation activities, childcare facilities, outdoor dining, campgrounds and outdoor pools.  To learn more visit .

Given the constant changes with the Health Order, the City is making every effort to work with the existing renters now that the county has loosened the health guidelines to a point that some use is allowed as long as users follow the “summer camp” protocol.

We’re afraid we are not able to accept any new requests for the remainder of the current allocation period (though August 2020). We will do our best to update you as new information becomes available. 

Thank you so much for your patience and understanding.
