The City of Antioch reminds residents that the 4th of July parade, day-long activities and fireworks show have all been cancelled due to the COVID-19 public health crisis.
Back on April 29, the City Council agreed to cancel the 4th of July Celebration along with community events through August.
The city said Monday that Families are encouraged to enjoy the holiday weekend close to home. Antioch parks have been open for health and fitness opportunities, and on July 1, 2020, picnic areas, park restrooms, and parking lot gates will open. The County Health Orders allow picnic areas and barbecues to be enjoyed by families and people in the same living unit or household.
The Antioch Water Park is now offering family swimming hours by reservation. To schedule your swim time for your family call the Water Park at (925)776-3070. It will be a warm holiday weekend, but you and your children can keep cool!
Additional programs and activities will be scheduled later in the summer when new Orders are provided by Contra Costa County Health Department. Residents are encouraged to stay connected with the City of Antioch by following the daily announcements posted on the website www.antiochca.gov and participating in the Virtual Recreation Center at https://www.antiochca.gov/recreation/virtual-recreation-center-and-network/
For more information about summer recreation programs and activities including summer camps for kids, sports programs, senior services and the Antioch Water Park summer season, please call the Department at 925-776-3050.
