Parks Shelter-in-Place Updates

Restrictions and Closures

Effective June 1, restrictions are lifted on motorized access to parks and beaches in Marin. View the Parks location list for the status of individual locations.

All visitors should maintain six feet of social distance. Anyone age 12 and older must bring a face covering that covers the nose and mouth, and put it on when it is not possible to maintain 6 feet of separation. A cloth mask, scarf, or bandana is OK.

Playgrounds, picnic areas, swimming pools, and restrooms may be closed, even in parks that are open. Observe closure signs. Parking may be limited at regional parks to prevent overcrowding. Cities and towns may continue to enforce parking restrictions. Other limits may apply, even at open locations. Please respect posted signs and guidance from rangers.

Plan ahead. Verify the status of a location before traveling. In some locations, especially west Marin, local services such as food and gas may be unavailable. Pack in what you need, and pack everything out.
