To Our Orinda Parks and Rec Family:
Due to the latest Coronavirus (COVID-19) concerns here in Contra Costa County, Contra Costa Health Services has ordered a shelter-in-place for all community members within the county. On April 29, Contra Costa Health Services released an updated order which supersedes the initial order to shelter-in-place from March 31, 2020. The order will continue to be effective until 11:59 p.m. on May 31 2020, or until it is extended, rescinded, superseded, or amended in writing by the Health Officer.
Given this information, the City of Orinda has cancelled all facility reservations through May 31. In addition, City operations are limited therefore program transactions (including withdrawals, refunds, payments, etc.) are being processed steadily.
PREVIOUS FACILITY RENTAL REFUND DUE TO COVID-19
If you are contacting us regarding a reservation refund, please be advised that refunds will not be processed until City operations are back.
