DOWNY PARK AND ACCESS TRAILS AND ENTRANCES TO THE SANTA ANA RIVER ARE CLOSED DUE TO THE POSSIBLE PRESENCE OF A BACTERIA OUTBREAK IN THE WATER.
Downey Park and all access point to the Santa Ana River are closed under the direction of the County Environmental Health and Disease Control Department due to a possible outbreak of the Shigella Bacteria in the riverbed.

Our Park Rangers are now in the process of closing our City Park and posting the necessary placards/signs that will notify the public of this condition. The County staff will commence their testing of the Santa Ana River in order to confirm or not the existence of this bacteria. To date, 6 patients have tested positive for this bacteria in our county. The City Park at Downy will remain closed until further notice from the County. Read the press release for full details.
