The City of Pasadena reopened the Rose Bowl loop on Thursday, May 14 for pedestrians, runners and cyclists. Users must abide by the following guidelines:

  • Practice physical distancing and provide at least six feet of space at all times.
  • Wear a face covering in parking lots and in crowded areas along the loop.
  • Gather with members of the same household only.
  • Alert one another when passing by and allow room to safely pass.
  • Users must also take their trash with them to protect other loop users, staff and wildlife.

Staff will be positioned along the loop to make sure users are abiding by the guidelines listed above.

“We hope people will do the right thing and keep each other safe while enjoying the loop. If we see a lot of people not keeping a safe distance from each other or not following the other safety guidelines recommended by health officials, we’ll have to recalibrate and consider closing the loop again,” said Public Information Officer Lisa Derderian.

The loop is open from 6 a.m. to 7:30 p.m., and parking is available in Lot I. Parking is limited to 90 minutes and will be strictly enforced. The loop is closed to vehicular traffic, except for vehicles accessing the COVID-19 testing site and Brookside Golf Course, which are guided through by traffic monitors.
