• Pacific Grove wins big in grants from Regional Parks

    The Monterey Peninsula Regional Park District (MPRPD) is proud to announce the recipients of the MPRPD Parks, Open Space and Coastal Preservation Grants for the fiscal year 2012-2013. Grants have been awarded to the Heritage Society of Pacific Grove, the University Corporation at Monterey Bay (CSUMB), Pacific Grove Museum of Natural History, Carmel Valley Recreation and Park District and the City of Pacific Grove.
    This year’s grants include funding for the Pt. Pinos Lighthouse restoration, parking lot and park improvements in Carmel Valley, the creation of enhanced viewing access at the Harbor Seal rookery on the Monterey Bay Coastal Trail, replacement of the Lovers Point Children’s Pool, and coastal native plant restoration projects by students and community volunteers.

    “With the help of our Assessment District Citizen’s Oversight Committee and District Staff, we were able to identify these worthy applicants,” added Ward 4 Director and President-Elect Kathleen Lee. We want to encourage the community to take advantage of this program as it truly does improve our region.”

    The MPRPD Parks, Open Space and Coastal Preservation Grant Program application window will open again in August of 2013. For more information please contact the District Offices at 831.372.3196 or at info@mprpd.org

  • Beach Report Card


    This is the Heal the Bay Beach Report Card for Monterey Peninsula beaches, which reports water quality grades, or when relevant, weather advisories. An A to F grade is assigned based on the health risks of swimming or surfing at that location. Look at the "dry" grade for all days except those "wet" days during and within 3 days after a rainstorm. Click here for more information on the Beach Report Card. Click the name of the beach when it pops up for more details, or choose a beach below.
