Many Marin County Parks locations began reopening on Monday, May 18, per an updated public health order. This order loosens restrictions on motorized access to recreational areas, so more people can once again enjoy spending time outdoors. However, it gives land managers the authority to open, limit, or prohibit motorized access as needed to prevent overcrowding, for public health and safety.
Remember to check the status of any location before heading out – especially popular destinations and coastal areas. Some locations continue enforcing parking restrictions. Marin County Parks has created an online location list, which provides the status of county parks and open space preserves.
Marin’s thousands of acres of public lands are under the jurisdiction of several different agencies–federal, state, county, cities, towns, and special districts. So the location list also includes links where you can look for updates from other jurisdictions.
The COVID-19 virus remains active. Practice social distancing and carry a face covering, to wear as needed. Remember to wash or sanitize your hands often. Reconnect with the beauty of nature, and stay safe. Get coronavirus updates from Marin Health and Human Services.
