2014 OC Parks Annual Passes Now 50% Off

Every year from 8/1, prices for the OC Parks Annual Passes get slashed by 50%. Passes are valid for the calendar year, so you still get usage for 5 months. There are 3 options:

1. Regional Parks (Wilderness Park Decal Included)
2. County Beach Parking Decal
3. Combination Pass (All of the above)

With about a month of summer vacation left, plus the warm fall weather, I think the Combination Pass is the best deal at $40 (Regular price $80). You can visit the Regional Parks, Wilderness Parks, and the County Beaches until the end of the year! Normal entry/parking fees are $3 on weekdays and $5 on weekends for Regional Parks, $3 daily at Wilderness Parks, and $1/hr at the County Beaches.

I had known about this for several years now, but I never got my timing right until this year. Finally got mine yesterday and already put it to good use today – for a quick visit to the Laguna Niguel Regional Park, just because we were in the area with about 20 extra minutes. The kids got to run around and get their wigglies out at the playground, while I got to breathe in some much needed nature time! I would never pay $3 for a 20-minute visit, but since I have the pass now, we’ll definitely visit this park more often!
