Header that reads: COVID-19: Social distancing in public parks and trails. Do not use parks or trail
Did you know that the current Shelter in Place order allows for individuals to "engage in outdoor activity, provided the individuals comply with the Social Distancing Requirements...such as, by way of example and without limitation, walking, hiking and running." Here’s a few ideas (don’t forget your Social Distance rules!).

  • Visit a local park - Did you know that Seaside has 23 parks? Please note that our playgrounds have been closed, but the park grounds remain open to the public. 
  • Visit a nearby County or State Park - These are still open with the exception of the campgrounds. 
  • Head to the beach. Seaside Beach is just a short drive away with plenty or open beach to walk. 
  • Walk/Run or take a bike ride around your neighborhood.
  • Go for a nice scenic drive
