Parks and Recreation

COVID-19 Local Health Emergency
Due to the COVID-19 Local Health Emergency the Governor has deemed recreation as a non-essential service.  Therefore, the Tuolumne County Recreation Department and all of it's programs and facilities will remain closed for the duration of the Governor's shelter-in-place order.  Once the order is lifted and we are allowed to return to work we will evaluate where we are at and determine what programs we can offer. We are hoping that this can be close to a full schedule of programs and classes, but we are also planning and preparing to modify some of our programs to work under the circumstances that we may find ourselves in.

Please check back frequently for updates and new information regarding the closure and possible reopening.

We apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause and we hope that you and your families stay safe and healthy through this unprecedented time!
