 Park News, Weather Updates & Park Closures
(Updated 08/26/14)

  • The Kanaka Loop Trail at Santa Ysabel East Open Space Preserve is temporarily closed with an unknown re-open date.  We apologize for the inconvenience. 

  • Due to the draw down of water at Lake Morena County Park, the boat ramp will be closed to launch personal watercraft until further notice. Personal float tubes, canoes, and kayaks are still able to launch on the lake.  The motorized boats available at the lake's marina can still be rented, and are able to operate for daily fishing and water activities.  Please call the Lake Morena Park office for further information at (619) 579-4101.  

 For up to date information on park closures, please call our reservation and information center at (858) 694-3049 or you can visit us on Facebook and Twitter.
