Marin County Parks

Mission

Marin County Parks is dedicated to educating, inspiring, and engaging the people of Marin in the shared commitment of preserving, protecting, and enriching the natural beauty of Marin's parks and open spaces, and providing recreational opportunities for the enjoyment of all generations.

Strategies

Embraced by the Pacific coast to the west and San Pablo Bay to the east, Marin County is a remarkably beautiful place, with an abundance of parks and open space preserves, reflecting the county’s rich heritage of land conservation. Through decades of hard work, residents, neighborhoods, organizations, and government have protected tens of thousands of acres of open space, hundreds of acres of parks, and miles of scenic trails that have become community treasures, adding immeasurably to the quality of life enjoyed in Marin.
