City of Eureka Reminds Residents of Park and Trail Rules During COVID-19

 The City of Eureka has seen an increase in public gatherings at City parks and trails and would like to clarify permitted uses of public spaces at this time.  Public gatherings of individuals outside of the household remain prohibited in public spaces by both State and Local Health Officer Orders in an effort to slow the spread of COVID-19 to the maximum extent possible and mitigate the impact on delivery of critical healthcare services.


The City of Eureka recognizes the benefits of the outdoors during this challenging time and would like to assure the community that City parks remain open for exercise and other socially distant activities such as disc golf, singles tennis, trail walking, biking, etc.



 City playgrounds are now open for use.  Due to the ongoing spread of COVID-19 in our community, please follow these simple steps to help keep our outdoor playgrounds safe, open and fun.

  • Wear a mask (everyone 2 years & older)
  • Maintain physical distance of 6 feet between individuals from different households and prevent crowding of children;
  • No food or drink in playground area to ensure face masks are worn at all times;
  • Wash or sanitize your hands before and after you visit;
  • Plan ahead and try to visit the park at different times or days to avoid crowds or waits;
  • Know when to stay home. Elderly individuals and people with underlying medical conditions should avoid playgrounds when others are present.
  • Share the space to allow everyone to use the playground by limiting visits to 30 minutes when others are waiting.

 City park basketball courts and soccer field remain closed due to the close proximity required of individuals during game play.


Public gatherings of individuals outside of the household in parks and public spaces are not permitted per State and Local Health Officer Orders. Do not hold picnics, barbeques, parties and any other celebration or gathering of people in public spaces. If you see a significant violation of this health order, particularly large social gatherings in public spaces, please call 707-441-4203 Monday-Friday 8am-5pm, and 707-441-4060 on evenings and weekends.  


Please remember that whenever you are outside of your household and outdoors, you must wear a mask when you cannot keep 6 feet from others. Be prepared for limited access to public restrooms. Single-use restrooms are open along the waterfront, though multi-stall park restrooms continue to be closed. Residents are urged to bring their own water due to water fountains being closed. Do not use parks or trails if you are exhibiting symptoms. Follow CDC’s guidance on personal hygiene prior to visiting parks or trails.
