Green Friday

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. 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. Activities 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!  

2022 schedule - coming soon!
