Given the Santa Cruz County Public Health Order to Shelter in Place , and CDC recent recommendation to cancel all events over 50 people, all scheduled private reservations for City of Santa Cruz parks or facilities are being canceled until further notice.
We will tentatively accept reservation requests for next year, but will only be able to confirm pending the latest State and County Health orders and recommendations.
We recognize that the timing of this decision may inconvenience many of you. However, this decision was made out of deep concern for the community. For more information on Parks & Recreation’s COVID-19 response, please visit cityofsantacruz.com/covid-19.
