Annual Park District Permits

Annual Park District Permits are a wonderful option for the frequent visitor. Permits are not only a great value, but also offer faster and more efficient entry into the Regional Parks, bypassing the need to pay at each visit. With the exception of Angler Membership, annual Park District permits are generally sold separately from the Membership program, and have their own separate individualized card that identifies the card holder and the benefit(s) purchased. Permits are issued to only one named individual, are non-transferable, and are good for 12-months from date of issuance. Upon entry into a Regional Park, photo identification may be required. Please note that parking placards are not annual permits; they are a benefit of Membership. For more information about Membership click HERE.

 

Annual Park District Permits are available for purchase through the Regional Parks Foundation. Permits may be purchased online, through the mail, by phone or in person at Park District Headquarters. Applications for permits can also be turned in at a Regional Park kiosk or one of the Visitor Centers. If applying for an annual Park District permit online, through the mail, or at a Regional Park or Visitor Center, please allow up to 14 business days for processing. All permits will be mailed through regular US mail. Only permits purchased in person at Park District Headquarters will be issued immediately. (Please note that the parking placard is not considered a permit; the placard is a benefit of the Membership program. Memberships purchased at Park District Headquarters take 7-10 business days to process and are not available for immediate pick up. Click HERE for more information on ways to purchase Membership.)

 

Day-use permits are available in some Regional Parks and Visitor Centers, and are not sold through the Regional Parks Foundation. Please visit the East Bay Regional Park District website at www.ebparks.org for more information regarding day-use permit sales and pricing.
