Bayfront Walkway, West Jetty Park to Close

As additional steps to reduce congestion in outdoor areas and limit the spread of COVID-19, the City of Newport Beach will:

  • Close West Jetty Park on the Balboa Peninsula beginning Wednesday, April 8. Other City parks remain open, and patrons are generally practicing safe social distancing. However, the relatively small West Jetty Park made social distancing difficult.
  • Close the Balboa Island Bayfront Walkway beginning Saturday, April 11. While the recently installed “one-way” directional signage improved social distancing, maintaining safe distances along the narrow Bayfront Walkway has been challenging.


Both closures will remain in effect until further notice.

Also this week (April 7-10), City crews will be placing additional signs throughout Newport Beach, including electronic message boards, to discourage any outdoor activities not permitted under the Governor’s “stay at home” order. With the number of COVID-19 cases increasing throughout Orange County, it is imperative that we all do our part to help our community.
