BUY A PARKS PASS
As Independence Day weekend approaches, Sacramento County’s Department of Regional Parks is reminding visitors to have fun and be safe during their celebrations. People of all ages should be aware of the rules and regulations at County parks. These rules promote safety and help preserve the parks.
Chief Ranger Michael Doane said, “Water safety is extremely important right now. In just the past four days, we’ve had four near drownings and one fatality.”
Kids under age 13 are required to wear a life preserver in and around all County waterways. However, even strong adult swimmers can run in to trouble in the river. Low water causes swift currents in some locations and exposes branches, trees and sharp rocks that can damage inflatable boats, canoes and kayaks. Swimmers and boaters of all ages should bring and wear a life jacket.
Parks visitors should also know the following rules. Alcohol is prohibited on the American River Parkway for the holiday weekend. Fireworks are banned in all County parks. And parking fees will increase from July 3 through July 5. Learn more…
