After a six-week closure, the loop around Pasadena’s Rose Bowl opened again today to walkers, joggers and cyclists.

The 5-kilometer loop has been closed to reduce exposure to COVID-19. But on Monday, city council voted to reopen the expansive recreational area.

Lisa Derderian with the city of Pasadena says you’ll need to follow social distancing rules and wear face coverings.

"Not necessarily masks, because our concern too is the health aspect. People are wearing masks, they’re exerting themselves — they’re not used to doing that. They could have potential medical issues as a result of that, which we’re seeing in other areas, too."

The Rose Bowl loop is open from 6 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. Parking is available in Lot I and holds about 1,400 cars.
