Parks March Madness

Pick your favorite places to play in our annual March Madness = Parks Madness event. In sync with NCAA basketball tournaments, we’ve scheduled our own championship bracket featuring parks and preserves across San Diego.

During March Madness = Parks Madness, look for games introducing top players in the North/Mountains, South, East and West/Central regions. Polls will be live for 24 hours (unless otherwise noted). Status reports will be shared following each matchup to show which locations have advanced to the next level. The park with the most votes at the end of the competition will earn “champion” status along with some much-deserved bragging rights.


  • March 16 – Round 1 (North/Mountains Region)
  • March 17 – Round 2 (South Region)
  • March 20 – Round 3 (East Region)
  • March 21 – Round 4 (West/Central Region)
  • March 24 – The 32
  • March 28 – Sweet 16
  • March 29 – Elite 8
  • March 31 – Final 4
  • April 3 – Championship

Cast your vote and follow along on the following social media channels: County Parks Facebook, County Parks Twitter, and County of San Diego Twitter.
