The Stand Strong & Stay Active program aids local gyms and fitness centers that have been shuttered due to the regulations put in place by the State of California and County of Los Angeles.
Through this program, businesses or individuals who wish to conduct fitness or exercise classes at a City of Lancaster park may do so through park rentals, provided they utilize all mandated social distancing measures. All park facility rental fees would be waived under the program.
