PARKING LOTS NOW OPEN
As state and local health orders and restrictions loosen, OC Parks is methodically adjusting its operations to increase access to outdoor activities.
Parking lots at County parks and beaches that closed in March after stay-at-home orders were put in place have now reopened at full capacity. Some amenities, including playgrounds, fitness courses, picnic shelters and nature centers, remain closed.
The OC Zoo and most historic parks remain closed, although the grounds of Heritage Hill Historical Park are open to stroll the exterior. Individual campsites at O’Neill Regional and Caspers Wilderness parks have also reopened, and may be reserved online or by calling the park itself.
Park and beach visitors should practice physical distancing, avoid crowded trails and areas, stay home if feeling unwell, and follow the Orange County Health Care Agency’s latest order. Beach visitors should also be participating in active recreation, not sitting on the sand.
Park operations are subject to change based on state and local guidance. Please check our website for the most up-to-date information regarding closures and modified operations.
