Green Friday

2019_Green Friday_Flyer_Half Sheet_1up


On the day after Thanksgiving, County Parks encourages San Diegans to swap shopping plans for outdoor experiences. We celebrate the 'upside of outside' with family-friendly activities in parks and preserves across the region, on a holiday we’ve coined Green Friday! 

Green Friday promotes fitness and fun in County parks. From ranger-led hikes and bike rides to touch tables and birds-of-prey expos, events are both active and educational – aligning with County Parks’ mission to balance recreation opportunity with efforts to protect and preserve land and local wildlife.

This year we’re taking things to the next level with new activities, partners, sponsors and expanded reach by partnering with  Live Well San Diego!  

Green Friday events are open to the public and there is no cost to attend. In fact, even the day-use fees (at parks where they are collected) are waived.  

County Parks oversees more than 350 miles of trails where people can hike, bike, ride a horse, site-see and picnic, we offer a ready escape from the hustle and bustle of daily life. Live Well partners cover a considerable amount of ground as well - offering services and support to community members in need. By joining forces, we're able to expand local programming to represent the interests of local populations. 

Green Friday events are open to the public and there is no cost to attend. In fact, even the day-use fees (at parks where they are collected) are waived.
