Pleasant Hill offers many different types of parks from large community parks with sports fields where children can play soccer or baseball; to small neighborhood parks where families can meet up for barbecues and picnics. All of its public spaces have one thing in common: it provides a peaceful place where kids and adults can get fresh air, exercise, and play. Pleasant Hill parks are perfect to read a book under the trees or walk your dog around while enjoying nature.

You're probably wondering how to plan a summer fun day in the sun without risking your life. Well, you can! So don't cancel all of your plans for fear of getting hurt from an unlucky event.

You may think it would be easy walking around outside with friends but there's always a risk lurking behind every bush; even if they seem harmless at first glance.


Pleasant Hill park safety rules are important, so take heed and stay safe! Some tips to remember:

  • Avoid wandering too far. There could be poisonous snakes. Children especially must be accompanied at all times.

  • Stay away from the wet surfaces of sand when barefoot because it might cause Tetanus

  • Always have someone with you who can pull you out in case of drowning while swimming during cool hours

  • Share your space ( limit visit to 30 minutes) or wear masks for everyone over two years old when on and around play structures

  • Wear sunscreen before going outside to prevent sunburns that may lead to skin cancer

  • Due to the threat of Covid infections, the city has added safety measures to make sure that visitors will have a good time in the parks without worrying if they will get sick.

  • Children over two years old should wear a mask when on and near playground equipment at all times!

  • Keep six feet apart from other park visitors (and try not to crowd on the equipment).

  • Wash hands for 15 seconds after playing with dirty objects or before eating or drinking anything.

  • Avoid spending too much time inside of children's attractions as it can be difficult to control how crowded they become; limit visits to 30 minutes if possible.

Sports fields, infield, dugouts, basketball courts, and bocce courts are open but visitors are advised that co-mingling of people from different households are not allowed nor is sharing with other residents.

Pleasant Hill park bathrooms are open during the day but will close in the evening; plan to use your home restroom if you'll be out late at night.

It is important to be cautious when visiting public parks. Make sure to observe park rules at all times to have a safe and enjoyable experience at any of Pleasant Hill’s public spaces.
