All City Parks Partially Re-Opened

Manhattan Beach, CA (May 13, 2020) - Following last week’s announcement of a gradual, phased-in, limited re-opening of specific parks and amenities, the City has re-opened the open/green space at all parks in the City, consistent with State and County Public Health guidelines.  

The open/green space that re-opened includes: Bruce’s Beach, Manhattan Heights Park, Manhattan Village Park, Marine Avenue Park, Eighth Street Parquette, and Larsson Street Parquette. Consistent with earlier partial park re-openings, park restrooms, playgrounds, community centers, picnic areas, basketball courts, dog runs, skate spot, fitness equipment, gazebos, and benches remain closed until further notice. Tennis courts are slated to re-open next week.

“The open space at parks offers residents an opportunity to recreate and enjoy the outdoors while ensuring a safe environment exists for the community. Please continue to be ‘park smart’ by abiding by social distancing and wearing a face covering when you’re around others,” said Mayor Richard Montgomery. 

A phased approach to re-opening parks and recreation facilities allows for safe and thoughtful community access while protecting public health. The principle guiding this phase of the re-opening includes activities with no contact, such as walking through a park. The City continues to strongly encourage residents to wear face coverings while in public, including in parks. 

Visit for detailed information on what is open and closed at each park and facility.

While City parks are open for limited recreation, residents are also encouraged to recreate at home and within their neighborhood. For ideas, tips and instructional videos on how to do so, visit the City’s virtual recreation program, “Healthy at Home.” 

The City will continue to monitor and evaluate the conduct and behavior of park visitors, their willingness to exhibit safe practices, and Coronavirus trends in the community. The City may adjust openings and closures based on such information.
