Why does Moraga Close Playgrounds, the Skate Park, remove Basketball Hoops but leaves the Volleyball Nets Up?

In response to the Covid-19 pandemic, the Moraga Commons Park closed playgrounds, the skate park and recently removed the basketball hoops. However, the volleyball nets are up, even though it’s closed according to the town website. Almost every time I walk by I see people playing. Why go to the trouble of removing the basketball hoops a short distance away but leave the volleyball nets up?

“Play Structures are Closed Until Further Notice”

Despite the “Play Structures are Closed Until Further Notice” signs popping up around playgrounds, basketball courts etc. I occasionally still notice both kids and adults failing to adhere to the social distancing order in effect around the Bay Area. The signs do help compared to before. Does anyone else still notice people congregating together?

Rheem Theatre Reopens in Moraga

350 Park St, Moraga

Over the summer Rheem Theatre temporarily closed as it was remodeled after being bought by Cinema West, and they have now reopened. The new theater offers reserved stadium seating rooms as well a main auditorium featuring a 60 foot wide screen with a Dolby Atmos sound system. To top it off, every seat is an electric recliner. Over the weekend I saw the new Star Wars movie (reserved via Fandango) and was impressed by the upgrades!
