Parks Updates:

The City of South San Francisco recognizes the importance of spending time outdoors during these difficult times, but also prioritizes the safety of our residents above all else. For this reason our parks and trails remain open to the public, but facilities such as bathrooms, tennis and basketball courts, playgrounds, the dog park, and water fountains are closed until further notice. While all residents should heed the statewide shelter in place mandate, there may be times where getting outside is needed for general well-being. If this is the case, we encourage residents to recreate in passive activities such as walking our paths and trails, but maintain appropriate social distancing of six feet
