All County Parks Closed This Weekend

Sacramento County Regional Parks facilities, including restrooms and parking lots, will be closed to the public Easter weekend, April 11 and 12. Regional Parks is proactively taking this measure to limit public use of parks facilities this holiday weekend, since it traditionally a busy weekend with an influx of visitors hosting large group gatherings.  Trails will remain open for use, and facilities will be monitored by Parks staff to ensure visitors are maintaining proper social distancing, as per the Sacramento County public health order.  ​

Social Distancing in Regional Parks

Parks and golf courses within the Sacramento County Regional Parks system will remain open, as the Public Health Order allows residents to engage in outdoor activity, provided the individuals comply with Social Distancing Requirements. Please remember that the point of this Public Health Order is to have people stay at home as much as possible, but as people utilize parks for essential outdoor activities such as walking, hiking, bicycling and equestrian activities while this Order is in place, we ask they maintain a social distance of at least six feet, avoid congregating in groups and wash their hands as often as possible. ​For more information, visit our Social Distancing Page​
