At last! The curious restriction has been lifted.
On Friday, L.A. County officials announced that bike paths and parking lots will reopen at some beaches ahead just in time for Memorial Day weekend, and curbside service at indoor malls will be allowed.
This will only apply to Dockweiler State Beach, Will Rogers State Beach, Zuma Beach and Surfrider Beach. However, Santa Monica and most public beach parking along the coast will remain closed.
Mayor Eric Garcetti announced that parking lots at Cabrillo and Venice Beach would reopen, but this is likely to be with limited capacity.
We are reopening the city beach parking lots at Cabrillo and Venice Beach as well as the beach bike paths — this is in addition to the County opening paths and lots at partial capacity at Dockweiler State Beach, Will Rogers State Beach, Zuma Beach, and Surfrider Beach.

Health and safety measures will remain place, as stated prior to reopening the beaches last week. This includes wearing a face covering at all times unless you are in the water. Sunbathing or sitting on the beach is also prohibited.
Along with that, car parades with given the go-ahead. Although, you will need to be in a closed vehicle to participate—that means no scooters, motorbike, convertibles, or golf cars. Anyone who wishes to host a car parade will be required to follow stay-at-home order, measures for social distancing, and wearing a mask.
