Rustic Canyon Recreation Center
You will see the recreation center, the parking lot and the pool area as you enter Rustic Canyon Recreation Center and Park. Once you park, you can make your way down to the lower area where the playground and tennis courts are. You can take the gated driveway, stairs or ramp down to the lower area. I plan to be near the playground (which is also right near the tennis courts). It's not big or confusing - It's a very small park and you won't get lost. Bring a blanket to sit on the ground if you like.
There is free parking on the premises. It's a small park and spaces can be limited. It's okay to park right by the recreation building (as long as you are not in red zones) and along the trees at the far end. There is some street parking available, but not a lot. It's a quiet (exclusive - some nice homes over there; no, I don't live there - I wish!) so be sure you are parking where you are allowed to park if on the street.
Covid/Pandemic precautions: We are outdoors and transmission is extremely unlikely in this environment according to medical professionals and rates are very low. I do not require masks, but you may wear one if you like (I don't see anyone wearing masks at the park even though the webpage says to wear one - I don't think it has been updated). Just please be aware of and respect each person's personal comfort with distance, some folks don't care at all and some do. On my end, I'm fine with hugs (I am fully vaccinated and boosted for Covid) PLEASE DO NOT ATTEND IF YOU or YOUR LITTLE IS SICK (even if it's a cold) or IF SOMEONE IN YOUR HOUSEHOLD IS ILL. I will have another Park Day in August or September.
If you are able to make it, I would love to see you. Babies and children are welcome, of course! There is a playground and many beautiful climbing trees. I may sometimes get names and identities mixed up - so I plan to have name tags there. Please help me out if I get befuddled with names - it's not personal It all looks different in person vs. a Zoom screen and also when I don't see you with your "class"! I plan to make a homemade carrot cake (my favorite!!!), but I won't have drinks - BYOB (bring your own bottle of water). You are welcome to bring a picnic or do whatever makes you happy
I can't wait to see you there and meet your baby!
