Alameda Park Winter Update
 
As the winter weather approaches, we will be closing the road gates to Alameda Park for the winter season.  
For 2020, we have extended our open road gates through Sunday, November 15.
On Monday, November 16, we will begin to close the road gates for the season. 
The water has been turned off for the season in all areas of the park, including the restrooms and Jade's Dog Park. We will leave the water on in the bathhouse restroom near the purple playground for the winter.
Throughout the winter months, the park will be accessible by walkers and bikers beyond the gated areas.
Thank you for your cooperation.
