To Our Orinda Parks and Rec Family:

Due to the latest Coronavirus (COVID-19) concerns here in Contra Costa County, Contra Costa Health Services has ordered a shelter-in-place for all community members within the county. On March 31, Contra Costa Health Services released an updated order which supersedes the initial order to shelter-in-place from March 16, 2020. The health order continues to be updated approximately every two weeks. To learn more visit .

Given the constant changes with the Health Order, the City is making every effort to work with the existing renters now that the county has loosened the health guidelines to a point that some use is allowed as long as users follow the “summer camp” protocol.

We’re afraid we are not able to accept any new requests for the remainder of the current allocation period (though August 2020). We will do our best to update you as new information becomes available. 

Thank you so much for your patience and understanding.
