Over the past few weeks, we have seen restrictions lifted on vehicle access to a number of parks and open space areas in Marin County. This includes Stinson Beach, Muir Beach, Mt. Tamalpais State Park, portions of Point Reyes National Seashore, and land owned by the Marin Municipal Water District.
As a result of these changes, and after careful consideration, we have determined it is appropriate to lift the current restrictions on vehicle access and parking in Tiburon as well. This will include reopening the parking lots located at:
- Blackie’s Pasture
- the corner of Paradise Drive and Mar West
- the Railroad Museum (Donahue Building) along the waterfront
It will also include lifting the current parking restrictions in place on various streets in Tiburon. We plan to make this change effective today, and Town staff will begin removing signage, traffic cones and barricades shortly.
We did not make this decision lightly, and it should not be interpreted as an indication the threat from COVID-19 has diminished. Residents and visitors are still subject to the provisions of various County Health Orders, the most recent versions of which can be found here.
The virus is still present in the community, and with the increase in visitation we expect from the lifting of these restrictions, it will be more important than ever we all take common-sense measures that help protect each other. These include maintaining appropriate social distancing protocols and wearing a face mask/covering whenever that is not possible. The most recent County guidance on the use of face coverings can be found here.
We are excited that residents and visitors will once again be able to more easily access Tiburon’s beautiful parks and open space areas, and simply ask that we all treat each other with courtesy and respect while doing so.
