Subject: Closure of Town of Yountville Community Center, Playgrounds, Picnic Facilities, Sports Courts, Most Park Restrooms and Outdoor Exercise Equipment until Further Notice
The Town of Yountville, with direction from the Napa County Public Health Officer, along with many other local, regional and nationwide entities, we have made the difficult decision to temporarily close Parks and Recreation areas to support our community through the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic. This includes the Yountville Community Center (Open by appointment for administrative business), ALL Park Playgrounds, ALL Picnic Facilities, ALL Sports Courts, and the Outdoor Exercise Equipment and park restrooms with the exception of Yountville Community Park. These facilities will remained closed until we are notified otherwise. Please observe signage, caution tape and locked facilities!
These are unprecedented times and we are all doing our best to help our community flatten the curve. This past weekend we had an increase in use with clear disregard for social distancing, posted signage and direction from public safety personnel which has led to more strict closures.
Our parks and paths are open to passive recreation (Walking, biking through) but we strongly encourage visitors to practice social distancing – give fellow walkers 6 feet of room, good hand hygiene and to stay home if having any symptoms of illness.
We understand that interruptions to our daily routines are difficult and we look forward to being able to re-open and serve our community as we had before very soon. In the meantime, please follow us on social media or look for our weekly newsletter sharing ideas for physical and mental health activities that you can do at home!
