East Bay Regional Parks Limit Activities Due Air Quality

from the Regional Parks Foundation

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. Check our website at www.ebparks.org for details.

Those with reservations in East Bay Regional Parks should contact our reservations office, Monday-Friday, 8:30-4:00pm at 1-888-EBPARKS (888-327-2757), option 2, should you choose to cancel or change a 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 ebparks.org, as well as via social media.

Our hearts are with the communities affected by the fires throughout the State, in particular Butte County.

Up-to-date information on air quality and guidance to limit exposure is available at www.baaqmd.gov.
