Santa Clara reopens park restrooms, adds skate park hours

While COVID-19 cases continue to spread in the West Valley, cities are adapting and attempting a new normal.

To support recreation and outdoor activities for all ages, the City of Santa Clara is reopening some amenities.

The city’s skate park, located at 2440 Cabrillo Ave. is reopening July 14, though under some new restrictions. Skaters must register in advance for free one-hour sessions. The park is open Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday from 1 to 8 p.m. each day.

Skaters must use their own equipment and cannot loan or share with others. Face coverings are required except when skating and social distancing must be followed.

Santa Clara is also opening public park restrooms in the city, which have been shuttered for nearly four months.

Social distancing and face coverings are required. City staff are utilizing an enhanced cleaning program for the restrooms. Safety guidelines will be outlined on signage in front of the restrooms.

“Safety is our number one concern, so we are doing our part to ensure our restrooms are clean, sanitized and disinfected for our park patrons,” said Ray Castro, Parks Foreperson, in a video.
