Thursday, April 9, 2020 (Oakland) – New temporary restrictions at select Regional Park parking lots and staging areas will be enforced this Easter weekend, Saturday/Sunday, April 11-12, 2020, with the goal to reduce crowds anticipated to come to parks this weekend.
“Respectfully, please don’t drive to Regional Parks this Saturday/Sunday of this Easter weekend,” said Park District General Manager Robert Doyle. “We can’t have the huge crowds that we did a few weeks ago.”
“This upcoming weekend, the public should consider staying at home, walking in their neighborhood, or visiting parks on less crowded days or times,” added Doyle. “No picnicking and group activities are allowed by the “Stay-at-Home” orders, which has been in place for the past two weeks.”
The following Regional Parks will be affected with temporary parking area closures for this weekend, April 11-12, 2020:
