Virtual Activities & Resources


Virtual Activities & Resources

With our in-person programs postponed and facilities temporarily closed, we will continue to share activities and resources through our Youth, Parks, and Community Enrichment Department’s Virtual Activities and Resource Center to keep the Sacramento community active, connected, and informed! This is your place for fun, education, and resources through these unprecedented times. We are committed together to empower our youth, strengthen our neighborhoods, and provide life-enriching programs for a beautiful, livable community.

Visit this page often or follow us on Instagram and Facebook for new updates and ideas to keep you and your loved ones healthy, active and informed. Also, tag us at @ypce_cityofsac and use the hashtag #YPCESAC to share how you are staying connected through parks and recreation!

Information

The Sacramento County Department of Public Health updated and extended the stay-at-home order effective May 1 through May 22. The new Public Health Order adds clarification and amendments to which recreational activities are allowed and which are prohibited. 

Changes include:

- Allowing non-contact recreational facilities and activities that include the use of shared equipment, including shooting and archery ranges, disc golf, tennis courts and boating, provided that activities are in conformance with social distancing requirements and appropriate disinfectant processes.
- Contact sports or activities, including basketball, football and soccer are prohibited outside of residences.

Below are a few key highlights of what this means for Youth, Parks, & Community Enrichment programs and services:

- Tennis courts, Mangan archery range, disc golf areas will be reopened on May 1 and made available to the public to coincide with the new health order

- Drop-in childcare services for children of health care workers, first responders and city essential workers will continue at seven community centers through the health order extension period

- Outdoor park spaces and trails are being maintained daily and educational signage will remain posted to help ensure park patrons practice physical distancing while relaxing, walking, jogging or biking

- Athletic fields and courts are not available for group sports activities since contact sports and gatherings are prohibited, but they will be ready as soon as public health officials determine that it is safe to resume these activities

- Distribution of meals at multiple community center locations throughout the city for children 18 and under in partnership with NUSD and YMCA will continue

- YPCE continues to increase access to virtual activities and community engagement including access to mental health resources. Please see our Virtual Activities & Resources portal

- YPCE is developing contingency plans to preserve and offer as many summer programs as possible, including Camp Sacramento, aquatics, sports, community centers and senior center re-opening, job skills development and tutoring programs while adhering to the County Department of Public Health orders

- YPCE is exploring creative ways to increase safe online spaces for youth to engage with their peers and adult allies about how they are feeling and coping and practicing self-care and wellness during these challenging times. Engaging qualified mental health professionals to support these spaces is a key aspect of the design

- If you are a youth, ages 12-24, please take some time to complete our youth survey

Community Centers are closed until further notice
Starting Monday, March 23 all Community Centers as well as Hart Senior Center are closed to the general public and are instead re-purposed to provide Essential Worker Child Care program for first responders, health care workers, and essential City of Sacramento employees.
