New public health restrictions put in place at Community Park

A sign at one of Community Field's baseball fields announces that the field is closed to organized sports.

The City of Redlands has closed seven ballfields located in Community Park. The closure comes in response to new restrictions on youth sports and social-distancing guidelines adopted by San Bernardino County and the State of California.

Under the new restrictions, recreational team and youth sports of any kind, including for purposes of conditioning, drills and exercise activities, are not permitted in City parks. Until further notice, the ballfields located in Community Park will be locked and will not be available to the public.

The City of Redlands will share official guidelines for recreational team and youth sports when they are made available by the state. In the meantime, we encourage everyone to do their part to prevent the spread of COVID-19 by wearing a face covering, maintaining appropriate physical distance from people outside of your household and washing your hands frequently.
