Marin is offering free entrance to three county parks between December 20 and January 5, in an effort to get more families to visit.
McNears Beach in San Rafael, Paradise Beach in Tiburon and Stafford Lake in Novato will all waive their fees. The move is aimed at encouraging more families to visit, especially during the holiday break.
All three parks are awesome places to fish, fly a kite, watch birds or have a picnic or barbecue. At McNears and Paradise, you can kayak, paddleboard and canoe in the bay. You can even take a polar-bear dip on New Year’s Day if you dare. At Stafford Lake, try out the renowned disc golf course or hike the little-known Stafford Lake Trail.
