City Facility Updates

The City of Irvine has taken several precautionary safety measures to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19 in our community. Community centers, playgrounds, indoor facilities, athletic fields, basketball courts, and stadiums are closed until further notice. Many City events and classes have been postponed, while certain programs have been modified to best protect the public. Please click the categories below for more details on specific closures and modifications.

Irvine outdoor park spaces remain open for passive use, and tennis and pickleball courts have been reopened for modified play. Visitors must practice social distancing, following federal guidelines to slow the spread of COVID-19. COVID-19 is spread through close person-to-person contact, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention warns that some spread might be possible before people show symptoms. 

The Irvine City Council and City staff offer our sincere apologies for any inconvenience. For more information on the City’s measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in our community, and updates on the this rapidly evolving situation, visit cityofirvine.org/covid19.​
