City Close Parks Temporairly

In response to the current environment of surging of COVID-19 infections, the City of Pico Rivera has temporarily closed all city parks out of an abundance of caution. City staff will monitor the situation weekly to determine when it will be safe for families to frequent parks once again. The City’s priority is the safety and wellbeing of all residents.

In the interim the City wants to remind residents that the City’s Virtual Recreation social media campaign (#PRRecAtHome #PicoRiveraRecAtHome) continues to feature activities for every day of the week. Designed as a resource for our community to access 24/7 during this time of social distancing, it provides quality recreation activities meant to entertain, inspire and encourage people of all ages and abilities to stay active from the comfort of their own home.

All of the City’s suggested activities on social media can also be found in one location and accessible to everyone, even if residents are not connected with the City via social media through the City’s website here.

Activities include:

Move It Mondays – workout video links to keep physically active & healthy

Start with Art Tuesdays – links to websites featuring various art mediums

Wellness Wednesdays – links/videos to information on staying mentally and emotionally healthy

Virtual Tour Thursdays – links/videos to virtual tours such as National parks, museums and zoos

Family Fun Fridays – ideas to promote family bonding

Summer Family Challenge Saturday - Each Saturday, a new challenge is introduced where families can complete activities and submit them for a free 4 oz frozen yogurt courtesy of Menchies in Pico Rivera.
