All City of Newport Beach ACE programs will be suspended until at least April 20, 2020 due to the Newport-Mesa Unified School District closure. ACE classes will resume when schools re-open. The OASIS Senior Center will remain closed to the public through Sunday, April 12.
We are currently NOT ACCEPTING any new registration for Spring 2020 until further notice. We look forward to bringing programming back soon. The situation is being consistently evaluated to determine when programming can commence for spring. Look for emails with updates on the spring session.Though City parks are open, on March 23, the City closed amenities within the parks including playgrounds, fitness equipment, fields (baseball, soccer, multi-use), all courts (basketball, tennis, pickleball, handball and volleyball) and the dog park to further discourage gatherings of any size and help prevent the spread of COVID-19.
