Unhealthy Air Quality Conditions

Message to East Bay Regional Parks Users: Unhealthy Conditions

The Bay Area’s Air Quality Index is currently at unhealthy levels and your health is important to us.

The East Bay Regional Park District is advising visitors to minimize or refrain from active outdoor recreation due to the unhealthy air quality. Scheduled programs by interpretive or recreation instructors may be canceled.

Those with reservations in East Bay Regional Parks should call our reservations office, Monday-Friday, 8:30-4:00pm at 1-888-EBPARKS (888-327-2757), option 2, or call the park directly, should you choose to cancel or change a reservation for picnic, camping, program, or indoor facility reservation/registration.

Currently, no fires of any kind are allowed in any East Bay regional park.

Should air conditions worsen, park or facility restrictions may occur, and service levels may be reduced for the safety of the public and our park staff. All restrictions will be posted by 4pm for the following day on our website and via social media.

Our hearts are with the communities affected by fires throughout the State, in particular Butte County, as this fire is greatly contributing to the Bay Area’s air quality. Up-to-date information on air quality and guidance to limit exposure is available at www.baaqmd.gov.

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, established in 1934. The system comprises 121,000 acres in 73 parks including over1,250 miles of trails for hiking, biking, horseback riding, and nature learning.
