There have multiple reports in the community about residents not adhering to current city closures of active park amenities to include but not limited to tennis courts, wiffle ball courts and playground equipment.
We have found locks cut and signs either removed or defaced in some of these areas. We want to remind our community that each of us has a personal responsibility to flatten the curve in regard to community spread of COVID-19. The city of Huntington Beach is taking an active role in attempting to limit community spread and we are expecting that our residents will also do their part in adhering to the current regulations and rules that have been put into place.
At this time, residents who are found in violation of current COVID-19 related closures at city owned facilities, including providing your own nets or other equipment to use the amenities, may be issued a citation from the Huntington Beach Police Department.
In addition, cutting off locks and defacing or damaging signs is vandalism and jumping fences could be a violation of trespassing, which are both misdemeanors and you will be subject to arrest.
