Green Friday at the East Bay Regional Parks

from the East Bay Regional Parks

Join us on Green Friday – the day after Thanksgiving – for a Free Park Day in Regional Parks. Green Friday is a great time to enjoy the fresh air, admire the fall colors, and spend quality time with family and friends. It’s also great for working off the Thanksgiving holiday meal!

To celebrate Green Friday, the Park District is again waiving all park entrance and activity fees, including parking, dogs, horses, boat launching, and fishing, as well as entrance to Ardenwood Historic Farm. Note the fee waiver does not include state fees for fishing licenses, watercraft inspections, or concessions, such as the Tilden Merry-Go-Round and Redwood Valley Railway steam train.

The Park District’s Green Friday celebration is part of the #OptOutside movement, started in 2015 by REI, to promote healthy alternatives to shopping the day after Thanksgiving.
