Fremont parks remain open this weekend with limited health and fitness amenities

4th of July parks

Fremont parks remain open this Fourth of July weekend, however amenities remain limited in accordance with Alameda County’s Shelter-in-Place Order.   We encourage the Fremont community members to continue to use our outdoor spaces for health and fitness and kindly ask that all park visitors follow Shelter-in-Place and posted park rules and help reduce the spread of COVID.  The following rules remain in place:

  • Face coverings are required outdoors, if you are within 30 feet of a person living outside your residence.
  • Social distancing of 6-feet is required.
  • Group gatherings are restricted.  See Alameda County Health Order for guidance on social bubbles.
  • All fireworks are prohibited in the City of Fremont
  • No picnics are allowed, and picnic areas at all parks remain closed.
  • Play structures and sports fields (softball, soccer, cricket, volleyball, basketball, etc.) remain closed.
  • Dogs must remain on leash at all times.
  • Please do not enter a closed area or facility.

Fun Activities to Celebrate the Fourth of July at Home

We understand celebrating the Fourth of July and many other activities is very different this year.  To help community members, we have developed a short list of alternative activities that can be fun and safe for community members during the Shelter-in-Place Order.

  • Have a family picnic or barbecue in your backyard safely with your social bubble
  • Make patriotic themed food or desserts
  • Host a virtual party or game night
  • Create a chalk art mural on your driveway or on your patio
  • Have a water balloon fight or play water balloon toss
  • Ride a bike or scooter
  • Go for a nature walk in your neighborhood
  • Fly a kite or blow some bubbles
  • Camp out in your backyard
  • Find a shady tree and read a book
  • Play board games outside
  • Create a mini-golf course with items around your house
  • Glow in the dark bowling - Add glow sticks into 10 bottles of water to make bowling pins
  • Play volleyball with an inflated balloon
  • Make a TikTok video
  • Share your alternative activity with @FremontPD & @FremontRecreation

We wish everyone a very safe and happy Fourth of July!
