- Do Your Part to Keep Parks Open: Visiting a park can be good for your physical and mental health, especially during these difficult times. However, the City of San José needs you to follow the County’s physical distancing orders and stay out of closed facilities in parks. Certain park facilities have been closed to protect the health and safety of our communities. Please stay out of these areas. This includes all dog parks, basketball courts, soccer fields, playgrounds, picnic and barbeque areas, and restrooms. Do not gather in parks and stay at least 6 feet away from others at all times. If public health and safety rules are not followed, the City will close parks.
