Chabot Gun Club CLOSED: September 5, 2016
On September 5, 2016, the Chabot Gun Club closed after more than 50 years of operations at Anthony Chabot Regional Park in Oakland. The Club’s lease extended until March 2017 but the Club’s managers opted to close early.
The East Bay Regional Park District’s Board of Directors voted unanimously in March 2016 not to renew the Club’s long-term lease, based on environmental damage and inability of the Gun Club to pay the high cost of meeting stricter state environmental standards. Due to the popularity of the Gun Club, the Park District Board granted the Club a full year to wind down operations.
