Following the orders and guidance of state and county health officials, effective March 20, 2020, the District suspended all programming and closed our facilities with the exception of District office administrative functions and Meals on Wheels at the Percy Bakker Community Center (meal pickup only). This includes ALL recreational programming and classes, events, facility rentals, Open Gyms, Kids Kamp, and the After School Activities Program (ASAP).  Limited staff is available to answer questions and address concerns as needed; please call (760) 244-5488, contact us via the District website www.hesperiaparks.com or via email. 

Outdoor parks remain open for day use; social distancing practices are encouraged for all outdoor park visitors.  We recommend you take precautions if you choose to utilize outdoor play equipment to include the washing of hands and use of hand sanitizer before and after use.

We encourage anyone that may have potentially been exposed to COVID-19, either directly or indirectly through a member of your household, to seek the advice of a medical professional. 

These closures are in effect from now until further notice

This is a rapidly evolving and fluid situation; this information is subject to change.  Our most up to date information, as we receive it, is posted here at https://www.hesperiaparks.com/covid-19-postponements-cancellations and will also be communicated through normal methods such as email, phone calls, and social media posts. 

We understand these decisions may cause hardship for some; we appreciate your understanding as we strive to balance the needs of programming in our community with the health and safety of all who utilize our programs and facilities.

  • Hesperia Recreation and Park District has joined over 900 groups nationwide in support of safe use of parks during the COVID-19 outbreak.

We encourage all users to follow these recommendations:
• Refrain from using parks or trails if they are exhibiting symptoms.
• Follow CDC’s guidance on personal hygiene prior to and during use of parks or trails.
• Prepare for limited access to public restrooms or water fountains.
• While on trails, warn other users of their presence and as they pass, and step aside to let others pass.
• Follow CDC guidance on the recommended size of social gatherings including outdoor picnicking, pick-up sports and other group hangouts, and maintain proper physical distance at all times.
• Observe CDC’s minimum recommended social distancing of 6 feet from other individuals at all times. If this is not possible, users should find an alternate location or depart that space.
• Consult their local and state ordinances and guidelines for the most up to date recommendations on park and trail use.
