Parks and Nature Preserve Closed


Out of an abundance of caution and in accordance with guidance from state and local health officials to slow the spread of COVID-19, on March 23, the City of Rancho Palos Verdes announced the closure of the Palos Verdes Nature Preserve, all City parks, beaches, community centers, amenities and trails until further notice. All park buildings, playgrounds, parking lots, restrooms, game courts, and fields are closed. All park programming has been canceled until further notice. This includes all recreational activities, indoor and outdoor sports leagues, instructional courses, and group sessions/private events.

The closures are in accordance with a local emergency proclamation adopted by the City Council last week and come after City Staff and Park Rangers observed a high volume of visitors to City parks and the Palos Verdes Nature Preserve despite the “Safer at Home” Public Health Officer Order calling for social distancing.
