Marin County Parks July 4 Visiting Guidelines & Closures

from Marin County Parks

Have Fun, Stay Safe

The beauty of nature lifts our spirits and invigorates our well-being during these challenging times. But the COVID-19 virus continues to spread, so we all must continue taking precautions. When visiting a park or open space over the Fourth of July holiday, remember:

  • Small household or ‘social bubble’ groups only; no large gatherings.
  • Practice social distancing.
  • Wash or sanitize hands often.
  • Carry a face covering and wear it when you can’t maintain distance from people.
  • Pack in what you need. It’s OK to bring your own small picnic and lawn games to enjoy in a park. Just pack it all out.

Playgrounds, BBQs, and picnic tables remain closed. McNears Beach pool is closed. Parking may be limited or restricted to prevent crowding. Other restrictions may apply, even at open locations. Please respect area closure notices, and notices regarding the safe use of facilities.

Large public 4th of July celebrations across the Bay Area have been canceled. Some areas in Marin will be closed or have limited parking over the holiday weekend to prevent crowding. Check the status of a specific location before heading out – especially popular destinations and coastal areas.

Marin’s thousands of acres of public lands are under the jurisdiction of different agencies–federal, state, county, cities, towns, and special districts.  Parks’ location list includes links where you can look for updates from other jurisdictions. You can also check the One Tam map.
