Benches, Picnic Tables, and Trees in a Park

Our extensive park system boasts playgrounds, ball fields, group picnic area, swimming pools, tennis courts and miles of scenic hiking trails in the Lime Ridge Open Space. Each of Concord's parks has a distinctive character all its own.

Open Space closed due to extreme fire danger

As a result of the red flag warnings issued by the National Weather Service and extreme fire danger expected this weekend, the City of Concord is closing its open space areas with developed walking trails, including Lime Ridge Open Space and portions of Newhall Park. Lime Ridge parking lots at Treat Boulevard and Montecito Drive will also be closed.  

The closures will take place from sundown on Saturday, Sept. 26 to 8 a.m. on Monday, Sept. 28. 

City staff has consulted with the Contra Costa County Fire Protection District and determined that closing the open space is in the best interest of public safety and preservation of the natural environment. 

While red flag weather conditions do not increase the likelihood of a fire starting, they do dramatically affect its ability to spread rapidly.
