Beat the heat. LA City Cooling Centers are open to the public.

More Information




Current LA City guidelines and the most recent City Health Mandate requires masking at all indoor facilities and requires the City to check proof of vaccination as a condition of entry.

Although the LA County Department of Public Health now allows businesses to remove indoor mask mandates and modify their proof of vaccination status requirements based on their business needs, the City’s health order does not yet conform to that guidance and the current requirements remain unchanged.

As a City of Los Angeles facility, the Department of Recreation and Parks (RAP) rules and regulations for indoor mask mandates and proof of vaccination must conform to the City’s health orders which currently requires all individuals be masked while indoors at city facilities (Including Griffith Observatory and Cabrillo Marine Aquarium) and which requires proof of vaccination as a condition of entry. FOR THOSE UNABLE TO PROVIDE PROOF OF COVID-19 VACCINATION, ALTERNATIVE PROGRAMMING IS AVAILABLE. INFORMATION CAN BE FOUND HERE https://bit.ly/rapalt

RAP will continue to update the community about any changes to policies if and when the City’s health orders adjust.
