Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk Temporarily Closed

SANTA CRUZ, CA (March 18, 2020) The Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk is temporarily closed in response to COVID-19 health advisories.
The temporary closure includes the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk amusement park and arcades, Cocoanut Grove event facility and the Boardwalk Bowl family bowling center.
No cases of the COVID-19 virus have been reported at the Boardwalk. 
“We have not arrived at this decision lightly,” said company director Kris Reyes.  “We’re following recent guidelines put out by the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) regarding mass gatherings. We are confident this decision is in the best long-term interest of our employees and guests.”
The only previous closure noted in the park’s 113-year history followed the Loma Prieta Earthquake in 1989.
