No Fireworks Permitted at OC Parks

News ImageMany people enjoy celebrating July 4 at OC Parks, and with the holiday falling on a Saturday this year, even more people may visit. Planning your visit ahead of time and knowing the rules can help make for a more enjoyable holiday.

Most importantly, fireworks are not permitted at County parks on July 4 or any other day.

Expect increased crowds at parks, particularly regional parks. Parking lots may fill early, and once they do no additional vehicles will be permitted in the park. All shelters will be available only on a first-come, first-served basis and one person must be present at all times to hold the shelter. No reservations are accepted for July 4.

OC Parks Introduces New Parking Passes

OC Parks is pleased to introduce new parking passes that will allow visitors to use a single card to park at all County regional and wilderness parks and/or beaches.

The new “smart cards” replace the entry cards and stickers that were previously used for annual parking. Unlike the previous OC Parks passes, which were fixed to a calendar year (January through December), these smart cards are valid for 12 months from issue date and can be renewed annually. Moreover, for wilderness and beach locations which previously required a sticker affixed to a visitor’s windshield, these passes can be used with any vehicle. The price for the new cards remains the same as 2014.
