In the previous post, I wrote about the impending closure of 70 California State Parks. Though Montana de Oro State Park is not on the proposed closure list, it is just one of the many unique treasures that we have in California. All of the state parks preserve some aspect of natural history or human history  so it is ironic that it is the parks themselves that need preservation now. I’ll be honest and say that I haven’t been all of the state parks nor even know anything about half of them but of the many that I have visited and read about, they are all special. No doubt we the people would be losing a lot by allowing 70 of them to fall by the wayside and potentially open up to private developers.

  1. I’m by no means familiar with the California state parks, but the setting aside of public lands, whether they be state, federal, or local is one of the wisest moves ever made. To let them wither away, or even worse, fall into the hands of private developers would be a stupid and tragic step in the wrong direction. Thanks for these posts.

  2. Thanks guys.

    Dennis – The parks that have an entrance would probably be shut to “dissuade” vandals from getting in. Of course it probably wouldn’t do anything but drive away the people who actually go for legit reasons. Unfortunately California is full of idiots who don’t care about anything and destroy stuff (graffiti, etc…) for their own selfish reasons.
