PARKS OF CENTRAL CALIFORNIA

There are many different parks including river parks, forests, and wide open spaces. You can fish, camp, picnic, and even hike, depending on the park. One thing is for sure, they are a wonderful place to spend the day.

 

Parks Along California's Central Coast
Many of the parks along our central coastline contain beaches. The purpose for creating most of these parks is to protect and preserve the wild animals, flora, waterways, and ecosystems along the California coast. By opening these areas to the public, our wildlife is not only preserved, but enjoyed by many.

Parks on Central California's Coastal Range
The coastal mountain range of California rises up (Reaching heights of 4000 ft. elevation) dividing the space between the San Joaquin Valley (much of which is between 100 and 200 ft. elevation) and the coast. It is mostly rolling hills, with jagged rock outcroppings. The trees range from different types of pine to oak. much of the mountains are covered in wildflowers throughout the Spring.

Parks of California's Central San Joaquin Valley
The central San Joaquin Valley is rich in farmland. Feeding these farms are large rivers, lakes, and reservoirs. Most of these waterways make fantastic recreation areas for the entire family.

Parks of California's Sierra Nevada
Many of the parks along our central coastline contain beaches. The purpose for creating most of these parks is to protect and preserve the wild animals, flora, waterways, and ecosystems along the California coast. By opening these areas to the public, our wildlife is not only preserved, but enjoyed by many.
