In an effort to help minimize the spread of COVID-19, City offices, facilities, parks, Aquatic Center and programs are closed through April 30, 2020. City sponsored events are canceled through April 30 in alignment with direction on gatherings from the CDC.  We also have customer service available email at recreation@ci.patterson.ca.us between 8:00am-5:00pm on Monday-Friday.

Stanislaus County has closed Aging and Veterans Services, senior and community centers to the public to follow the advice of health experts in the area from March 20 through April 30th.

The Hammon Senior Center, in Patterson is one of many centers now serving as distribution centers of frozen meals to replace the senior congregate lunch program and will continue to do so through the shutdown.
