To prevent the spread of COVID-19 (novel Coronavirus), the City of San Rafael closed community centers to walk-in service. We are currently offering summer classes and camps while strictly adhering to Marin County health guidelines.  For additional updates, please visit the City’s website.


Effective immediately:

Please remember that parks are only open for passive use, like walking or jogging, and other activities that maintain social distance.

As per the updated parks order effective May 18, 2020, San Rafael Parks are once again accessible by motorized vehicles, but park amenities such as bathrooms and playgrounds remain closed to help reduce the spread of disease. Gatherings, sports, and pickup games are not allowed. Maintain a social distance of six feet from others, and please remember your face covering. Thank you for helping to be a part of “flattening the curve” and slowing the spread of the virus.

The City has also developed a temporary outdoor recreation class rental program  to support San Rafael organizations and businesses that are looking to move their recreational classes outdoors, based on the County’s Guidelines for Outdoor Recreation Activity Businesses.
