Alum Rock Park – Open with limited use

Alum Rock Park Re-opens, Saturday, April 1! FREE parking at the Eagle Rock & Rustic Lands parking Lots has been extended through June 30, 2017. This means you can continue to park for FREE inside Alum Rock Park (except on Holidays). We encourage everyone to use this free parking to reduce impact on the neighborhoods surrounding the park. The Alum Rock Visitor Center & Youth Science Institute parking lots will still cost $6.00 per vehicle for daily parking, or you can use a Regional Parks Annual Parking Pass. The Holiday parking rate for all Alum Rock parking lots will be $10.00 per vehicle. . Check for current Alum Rock trail information.
