Long Beach, CA - The City of Long Beach Department of Parks, Recreation and Marine (PRM) will resume issuing reservation permits for park picnic groves, bandshells and amphitheater on Monday, May 24.
"Thanks to our collective efforts to reduce the spread of COVID-19, our City has moved to the Yellow Tier that allows groups of less than 100 to safely gather in reserved outdoor park sites,” said Mayor Robert Garcia. “We look forward to being able to issue permits for indoor events at park community centers in the near future.”
Reservable outdoor sites include El Dorado Park West picnic areas, including Willow Grove; bandshells at Bixby and Recreation parks; Cesar E. Chavez Park Amphitheater; and picnic groves at El Dorado Regional Park. Permits must be requested at least two weeks prior to the event.
Details regarding permit applications, fees and other information for all PRM sites is available online by visiting LBparks.org and clicking “Facility Reservations Permits.” Those interested in requesting a permit for a specific location should follow the below instructions:
Information about reservable picnic sites and applicable fees is available on the PRM Facility Reservations webpage.
Permit applications and rule forms are available on the PRM Facility Reservation Forms webpage.
To align with the current City Health Order for the Yellow (Minimal) Tier, COVID-19 health protocols for picnic grove and bandshell reservations include:
PRM reservations ceased last year due to public health restrictions and safety precautions related to the COVID-19 pandemic. Now that Long Beach has seen a drastic and continual decline in cases and hospitalizations related to COVID-19, and as more people become inoculated, PRM is able to provide reservations again.
