    Labor Day Weekend – September 5-7, 2020

    California State Parks – Monterey District is working with neighboring agencies on beach closures for all Monterey County beaches for the upcoming Labor Day Weekend. Similar closure/mitigation efforts that were in place for the July 4th weekend will be implemented:

    • California State Parks will partner with local agencies to release a joint, unified message that all Monterey County beaches are closed for the Labor Day Weekend (September 5-7, 2020). A hard closure will be in effect with exceptions for water activities and active recreation.
    • All California State Beach parking lots will be closed.

    California State Parks is asking for the public’s cooperation at this time when our state is severely impacted by the multiple fires burning throughout the state, including fires in Monterey County and in the neighboring counties of Santa Cruz and San Benito. Your assistance is appreciated!
