Continuing to enact a safe beach reopening plan developed in coordination with regional lifeguards and public health officials, Mayor Kevin L. Faulconer announced the City of San Diego will begin moving into Phase 2 of its plan, which includes piers, boardwalks, Fiesta Island and Mission Bay Park.
Faulconer also announced a date to reopen Balboa Park’s Central Mesa this month.
The following timelines have been put forth by coastal cities around the County of San Diego and follow the plan developed previously by lifeguards around the region:
- Open East and West Mission Bay Parks to all park and water uses;
- Open all Mission Bay Park Parking lots to open at full capacity;
- Open Fiesta Island to pedestrians, dogs, and cyclists only.
- Open all piers and boardwalks.
- Open Balboa Park’s central mesa;
- Open all Balboa Park parking lots at full capacity.
- Open Fiesta Island to vehicles.
Enforcement will remain as directed by the County Health Order:
All persons on the beach shall practice physical distancing other than members of the same household.
The public shall not congregate or participate in active sports activities on beaches.
“We have made significant progress flattening the curve in San Diego,” said Faulconer. “The public’s cooperation and support have allowed us to move to the second phase of our safe beach reopening plan, as well as reopen Balboa Park’s iconic central mesa.”
