Free Day Use of Regional Parks for Military on Veterans Day Nov. 11


Active duty, retired and reserve military personnel will get free parking and park entrance on Veterans Day, Monday, November 11, 2013 at all East Bay Regional Parks. Military members of all service branches -- Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force, Coast Guard, and National Guard -- are invited to enjoy all Park District facilities in Contra Costa and Alameda counties.

“On November 11, we welcome all active and retired military personnel to our parks as guests. On behalf of the staff and the Board of Directors of the East Bay Regional Park District, we thank you for your service to our country and our community,” said East Bay Regional Park District President John Sutter.

This benefit to active, reserve, and retired military personnel is new in 2013, approved recently by the Board of Directors as part of the consolidated fee schedule. Benefits apply to the individual military person, but not the entire family (except parking, which is charged per vehicle).

The East Bay Regional Park District is a system of beautiful public parks and trails in Alameda and Contra Costa counties east of San Francisco Bay. The system comprises 114,000+ acres in 65 parks including over 1,200 miles of trails for hiking, biking, horseback riding and nature learning. See more at
