UPDATED: Eureka Reminds Residents of Park and Trail Rules During COVID-19

Updated on 10/1/20 to reflect changes per the State of California. 

The City of Eureka has seen an increase in public gatherings at City parks and trails and would like to clarify permitted uses of public spaces at this time.

Public gatherings of individuals outside of the household remain prohibited in public spaces by both State and Local Health Officer Orders in an effort to slow the spread of COVID-19 to the maximum extent possible and mitigate the impact on delivery of critical healthcare services.

The City of Eureka recognizes the benefits of the outdoors during this challenging time and would like to assure the community that City parks remain open for exercise and other socially distant activities such as disc golf, singles tennis, trail walking, biking, etc.

(the following strike out text was added on 10/1/20)

City playgrounds remain closed to maintain proper distancing and prevent surface contamination from shared equipment.

Caution tape and signage have been utilized to communicate the closure of this equipment. We ask the community to please not remove or displace this caution tape. The best rule of thumb is to not use any amenity with caution tape, or anything that requires you to touch, grab, or climb, etc. City park basketball courts also remain closed due to the close proximity required of individuals during game play.

Public gatherings of individuals outside of the household in parks and public spaces are not permitted per State and Local Health Officer Orders. Do not hold picnics, barbeques, parties and any other celebration or gathering of people in public spaces.

If you see a significant violation of this health order, particularly large social gatherings in public spaces, please call 707-441-4203 Monday-Friday 8am-5pm, and 707-441-4060 on evenings and weekends.  

Please remember that whenever you are outside of your household and outdoors, you must wear a mask when you cannot keep 6 feet from others.

Be prepared for limited access to public restrooms. Single-use restrooms are open along the waterfront, though multi-stall park restrooms continue to be closed. Residents are urged to bring their own water due to water fountains being closed. Do not use parks or trails if you are exhibiting symptoms. Follow CDC’s guidance on personal hygiene prior to visiting parks or trails. For more information on health guidance, please visit: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/.
