ANNOUNCEMENT
The City of Pinole Recreation Department is not accepting reservations for indoor facilities at this time.  Below is a list of all the parks and amenities that are open with restrictions. 

RECENT UPDATES

4/27/2021

The Recreation Department will reopen the Senior Center, Tiny Tots, and Youth Center facilities for limited in-person activities on June 15, 2021. Given the progress that we are making on COVID-19 vaccinations and the expectation that the State will begin to substantially reopen over the next few months, the City is tentatively planning to reopen key facilities and services, barring any setbacks in the fight against COVID.

The City will take a safe and phased approach to reopen facilities and programs, and will likely need to limit the number of in-person participants initially. More information on the timing and availability of specific programs and services is forthcoming. The tentative timelines noted above are subject to change based on changes in the trajectory of COVID-19.

4/19/2021
The Recreation Department is now accepting park reservations for Pinole Valley Picnic Grove Areas, Fernandez Park BBQ Area and Gazebo. Per State and County guidelines, outdoor gatherings are limited to two hours and 50 people or less. Social distancing must be followed, and masks must be worn at all times except when eating and drinking. Reservations are accepted on a first come, first served basis, groups with a completed reservation have first and sole priority of use of the reserved space. Reservations can be made through our online system. Questions email recreation@ci.pinole.ca.us or call 510-724-9062.

Guidelines for Outdoor Gatherings

  1. Informal social gatherings, such as picnicking with family and friends or birthday parties, are limited to a maximum of 50 people.
  2. Gatherings should be two hours or less. The longer the duration, the risk of transmission increases.
  3. Each picnic table may be occupied by only one household or living unit at a time
  4. Each barbecue pit or grill may be used by only household or living unit at a time
  5. Each member of a household or living unit must maintain at least six feet of separation from all members of other households or living units in the area. For clarity, members of the same household or living unit do not need to be six feet apart from each other
  6. While face coverings are removed for eating or drinking, individuals must stay at least 6 feet away from everyone outside their own household, and put their face covering back on as soon as they are done with the activity.
  7. Food and beverages should be served by a person who washes or sanitizes their hands frequently, and who must wear a face covering.
  8. Remind all persons to sanitize hands before eating or drinking, and after touching shared items if shared items are unavoidable.



12/14/2020
Restrooms will be reopened in our parks between the hours of 8am to 4pm daily. The restrooms will be cleaned once per day, in compliance with CDC guidelines. In order to reduce the spread of COVID-19, we ask that citizens who use the restrooms clean/wipe down the area (sink facets, door handles, etc.) you touched.
