Parks and Gardens

The Mendocino Coast is blessed with a congenial climate and a lot of open space, much of it protected in parks and preserves. The State Park system has 17 properties in Mendocino County alone, and there are many other park properties owned by the county, the cities, the Mendocino Land Trust, and others. Collectively, we have an incredible variety of parks to visit. This page describes the various parks in sections based on their location, from north to south. Please check with State Parks about specific regulations that pertain to any area and desired activities (such as dogs, camp fires, etc).
