City Hall Scoop

South Pasadena News and Updates from City Manager Stephanie DeWolfe

Take a stroll, walk or even a jog through South Pasadena’s beautiful park but please be aware that all tennis courts, basketball courts, playgrounds, trails and gazebos are not available for use at this time, as such they have been fenced off to prohibit group gatherings which promote the spread of viruses and may cause illness. The Skate Park, Dog Park, Arroyo Seco Golf Course, Arroyo Seco Racquet Club, All Star Batting Cages and San Pascual Stables are also closed to the public, for the same reason. The City is taking every precaution to protect residents and need your help and cooperation to ensure the health and safety of the community.  

We have tons of open space for playing catch, kicking around a soccer ball, tossing a frisbee, a small picnic with those who live in your household or find a bench and read a good book..

There are signs and staff reminding everyone to use social distancing when in the parks.

If we can all remember to use social distancing when using parks and wear a mask when possible, we as a community can do our part to flatten the curve on the COVID – 19 virus.

Need other ideas to stay active, click the following link to our Virtual Recreation Page for online classes and ideas. Taking a bike ride around town is a good way to exercise especially with less cars on the street. Just don’t forget your helmet. Walk your neighborhood and wave to your neighbors. Check on elderly neighbors on your block to make sure they are doing ok. Walk Mission street and window shop or pick up a lunch at a local restaurant. It’s a great time to get outdoors and get moving. It’s not only good for our bodies but for our overall mental health. Just remember to be responsible, wear a face mask and keep your distance.
