East Bay Regional Park District - Enjoy local Swimming, Parking, Admission all FREE this Friday and more...

One of our favorite swimming pools, is the beautiful Castle Rock Pool in Walnut Creek, California. Swimming fees are so nominal, open Thursdays thru Sundays all summer long. I'd pay much more for the peaceful park setting surrounded by beautiful Oak Trees, wildlife, and hiking trails. It's like a vacation every time we visit. FREE on the 3rd Fridays of each month.

Free 3rd Fridays - Free Park Days
Among other festivities, East Bay Regional Park District is celebrating its 80th birthday by offering Free 3rd Fridays in the parks.
Starting April 18, fees will be waived for a variety of park services every third Friday of each month for the rest of the year.
Free 3rd Friday Dates: June 20, July 18, August 15, September 19, October 17, November 21, December 19
On those Free 3rd Fridays, you won’t have to pay for the following:
  • Parking
  • Boat launching*
  • Entry for horses and dogs
  • Swimming fees
  • District fishing permits**
  • Entry to Ardenwood Historic Farm in Fremont
*Boat launchers will still have to pay for the required invasive mussel inspection.
**Anglers will still have to possess a California state fishing license, for which there’s a fee. And there will still be fees for camping and for group picnic reservations.
Free Fridays are the park district’s way of thanking the public for eighty years of support. A grass-roots movement provided the political momentum for establishment of the district back in 1934, and public support has been key to the district’s successes ever since.
