Commit to Parking It All Year at OCParks

Commit to Parking It All Year at OCParks

If you want to commit to a New Year’s workout routine, you buy a gym membership.  How about committing to explore more of Orange County’s finest parks, beaches, and wilderness?  Buy an annual parking pass.

To get the most value out of your pass, buy it early and go often.  It’s only $80/year for a combo pass which includes parks and beaches.  That comes out to less than $7 a month!!  I bet you spend more on Netflix and you probably spend at least TEN TIMES that on your cell phone or monthly cable TV tier.  Invest in outdoor time, too!

I go to a A LOT of parks and I can honestly say that OCParks amaze me on every visit. I’m entering the 4th year of working on this website and I still haven’t explored them all. I’ve been to Irvine Regional Park countless times, but still there are more trails to hike and activities to try.

The monthly calendar is brimming with events and activities. Some special events to take notice of include:

Regional Park locations:

Wilderness Park locations:

Beach locations:

The possibilities are endless! has a comprehensive list of amenities where you can search for parks that meet your criteria. Visit and buy an annual parking pass now.

Disclosure: I received a complimentary 2011 and 2012 annual passes from OCParks. In years past, I’ve gladly bought my own and would have again this year.  I like to support my local parks! Read my full disclosure policy.

Such a great idea!! I'm thinking of not renewing any amusement park passes this year and trying to get out there more to what OC parks/nature has to offer. Thanks for the inspiration and info!
