It's Almost Time to Join the Fun Again!

As State officials move California into Phase 3 of reopening and continue to work toward lifting the stay at home order in its entirety, NOR is also working to be able to welcome our community back to Join the Fun again. While the process will take time, with several changes and differences, and perhaps a few hiccups along the way, we are excited to begin this journey to resume programming.

The health and well being of our staff and the community remains our priority and we are implementing measures to ensure both priorities are met daily.  Staff training and facility updates to accommodate new procedures are well underway.

  • What you will see: additional signage outlining social distancing and increased hygiene guidelines, additional hand sanitizing stations, increased disinfection of high touch surfaces and restroom facilities, sneeze guards at counters, staff members wearing masks and/or gloves when appropriate.
  • Behind the scenes: continual staff training, daily staff temperature checks, continued monitoring of mandates and guidelines as provided by Kern County Department of Public Health and the State of California.

Opening soon!

Spray parks: On Friday, June 12th at 10:00a all eight of the District spray parks will be turned on for the summer.  The hours of operation will be 10:00a – 7:00p, seven days a week through September 7th.

Summer day camps: Beginning June 18th, we will open registration for upcoming day camps.  Summer Adventure Camp will take place this summer and potential additional camp offerings are in the planning stages.  Dates for camps are still being finalized, with the first camp taking place the week of July 6th.  Stay tuned for additional information and finalized dates and times.

Not quite there yet…

The following facilities and amenities are not within the current Phase 3 opening guidelines and will remain closed until the District has received further direction:

Visit our website and social media pages regularly for updated information as we will continue to announce additional openings and program offerings as we receive clearance.

We have missed all of you and are deeply appreciative of your patience and understanding as we navigate these unprecedented times together and work diligently to open our doors to you again soon.

Continue to stay safe and be well.
