Today’s City of Fremont update highlights the cancellation of the spring session for recreation programs, classes, and facility rentals; changes to the Recreation Services Guide; and the status on City parks.
Recreation Spring Session Cancellation
The Recreation Services Division will be canceling the remainder of the spring session recreation programs, classes, and facility rentals scheduled through June 14, 2020. Staff has started to reach out to customers to confirm cancellations and issue refunds. The City appreciates your patience as refunds are a manual process that must be completed by staff.
Recreation Summer Guide
The Recreation Services Guide ‘Early Summer Edition’ was originally scheduled to be mailed to all Fremont household next week; however, it will now be produced exclusively online. This effort is intended to give staff more time to adjust summer offerings and alter summer current camp programs, as well as look into virtual online options. More details and the guide are expected to be released in May pending any updated details on the current Shelter in Place Order and gathering restrictions.
City Parks Status
All City parks currently remain open for walking and hiking. As a reminder, all park facilities, drinking fountains, picnic tables, dog park, tennis/basketball/sand volleyball courts remain closed. Parking lot closures are in place at Central Park, cutting the overall parking capacity by 60%. Additional closures will be evaluated and may be implemented at other parks, as needed. The City of Fremont continues to encourage residents to stay local by walking, jogging, or biking through one’s neighborhood rather than driving to larger regional parks. The current Shelter in Place Order is meant to encourage social/physical distancing of 6 feet, only use vehicles for essential activities, and to stay physically active by taking walks or runs in your neighborhood with people who live in your immediate household.
As we work together to slow the spread of the virus, the City appreciates your understanding. As new information becomes available, the City may make further adjustments to its overall service delivery.
