New County Health Order Affecting Parks

COVID19 Image

On Tuesday, March 24, the Public Health Division of Marin County Department of Health and Human Services issued a new order restricting motorized access to all Parks, Campgrounds and Open Space located in Marin County, regardless of ownership.  The intent of this Order is to ensure that the maximum number of people self-isolate in their places of residences to the maximum extent feasible, while enabling essential activities including outdoor exercise to continue, to slow the spread of COVID-19 to the maximum extent possible. A copy of this order can be found at the following link:

The Order is Available here.

In response to this order, the Town of Tiburon will be taking the following steps:

  • Effective tonight, the parking area(s) at Blackies Pasture will be closed to vehicle access.
  • Individuals may continue to responsibly access this area on foot or by bicycle.
  • Individuals driving vehicles with handicapped placards, or who otherwise believe they meet one of the exceptions included in the order, can continue to access Town park facilities by parking in the parking lot located on Tiburon Boulevard near Lyford Drive or at the parking lot located adjacent to Town Hall.
  • All visitors to any Park facility shall continue to comply with all Social Distancing Requirements.

This order comes in response to a large influx of visitors from around the Bay Area flocking to Marin parks and beaches over the weekend in search of outdoor recreation. Such crowds create unsafe conditions for County residents, particularly those considered most vulnerable to the COVID-19 virus.

The purpose of this order is to remind Marin residents and visitors to: 

Stay Local. Residents should only visit parks or trails within walking or biking distance of their home. Vehicular travel to parks, beaches, or trails is considered non-essential travel and is not permitted under the shelter-in-place order. Stay close to home while enjoying outdoor activity. 

Practice Social Distancing. It is important that residents continue to practice social distancing and maintain a 6-foot separation from others while outside the home to slow the spread of COVID-19.
