Celebrating Green Friday
Join us on Friday, November 25, 2022 for a Free Park Day in the Regional Parks. Trade in your shopping bags for a backpack and spend the day after Thanksgiving in nature! It's a great opportunity to visit the parks for free and spend time with family and friends.
Green Friday is part of the #OptOutside movement, started in 2015 by REI, to promote healthy alternatives to shopping the day after Thanksgiving. On Green Friday, all entrance activity fees are waived in Regional Parks, including parking, dogs, horses, boat launching, and fishing, as well as entrance to Ardenwood Historic Farm. However, the fee waiver does not include state fees for fishing licenses and watercraft inspections or concessions such as the Tilden Merry-Go-Round and Redwood Valley Railway steam train.
