Our Parks, Recreation and Neighborhood Services Department has created this public service announcement to explain how you can still exercise without endangering your neighbors at local parks and trails. Beginning today, Alum Rock Park and the Communications Hill stairs are closed to the public, following concerns about serious overcrowding.
