The health and safety of our community is our highest priority. Based on new guidelines from the Alameda County Public Health Department on March 16, 2020, Livermore Area and Recreation Park District has made the decision to close all District facilities,cancel all indoor and outdoor facility rentals, and cancel ALL programs and classes through May 4, 2020. Keep in mind that this is an ongoing event and dates are subject to change. If you have registered for a trip or excursion you will be contacted by the District regarding a refund for programs and services impacted by this cancellation. Community members may call our main office at 925-373-5700 or visit our website for ongoing updates at www.larpd.org.
Beginning Thursday, March 12, the Open Heart Kitchen "Good Thyme Cafe" lunch program held at the Robert Livermore Community Center will offer to-go meal service only. Guidelines posted on the ACPHD website (http://www.acphd.org/2019-ncov.aspx) relating to the coronavirus (COVID-19) recommend the cancellation of smaller community events (less than 100 participants) where people at increased risk of severe illness (older adults and those with chronic medical conditions) will be gathering.
The situation changes daily and we will continue to monitor and share the most current and updated information as we receive it. Please visit the Open Heart Kitchen website for current information on meal service in Livermore. https://www.openheartkitchen.org/senior-meals/

It can be lonely for many seniors while we are sheltering in place and isolation can be difficult to handle. If you are a senior sheltering in place, we want to have a friendly conversation with you and do a wellness check to make sure you are doing okay. Sign up for our Friendly Calls for Seniors and one of our LARPD staff will call to chat for few minutes to brighten your day and help you to stay connected with others. You will be called Monday - Friday during the shelter in place order at a time during the day that is convenient for you.
