Park District Reopening Some Parks Previously Closed Due to Winter Storms

See Specific Advisories in Effect Within Open Parks at ebparks.org

The Park District is reopening some Regional Parks previously closed due to winter storms. However, some parks remain closed as park staff continue to assess storm damage and clear debris from parks and trails, including downed trees, falling branches, mudslides, landslides, and flooding.

The public should exercise caution in reopened parks as the ground is highly saturated and some potential safety hazards remain, which cannot be predicted. Some parks areas and trails within opened parks may continue to be closed due to storm damage.

“Thank you to Park District Operations staff, support staff, and all of our first responders for their actions to continue to keep the public safe,” said East Bay Regional Park District General Manager Sabrina Landreth. “We thank the public for its understanding and cooperation as your safety remains our priority.”  

Visitors are advised to follow all park signage and warnings, including areas marked closed or taped off for the public’s safety. If an emergency occurs in a closed park or area, public safety personnel and equipment may not be able to respond easily due to road and trail conditions. Anyone entering Regional Parks when closed are also subject to citation or arrest for violation of the Park District’s Ordinance 38.
