Central Park Picnic Areas


Field rentals are closed/cancelled due to COVID-19. Click here for the full list of Recreation & Park closures.

City of Fremont facilities remain closed through May 31, 2020. This aligns with the April 29, 2020, Shelter In Place Order, issued by the Alameda County Public Health Department, in coordination with six bay area counties and the City of Berkeley, announced for residents in the Bay Area to stay home through May 31, 2020 to help slow the spread and reduce future impact on local hospitals from Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19). Given some of the updated regulations in the new Order, the City will continue to publish regular updates for the community.
