Fitzgerald Marine Reserve Parking Lot Improved and Open
The Reserve parking lot has been improved to include:
- A system that diverts and filtrates rain water runoff before it is discharged into San Vicente Creek
- Two Americans with Disabilities Act parking spaces and accessible pathways to the parking lot and bathroom
- Enhanced access to the California Coastal Trail
In addition, visitors to the Reserve can view “This is Fitzgerald Marine Reserve” now that a large video screen has been installed at the Visitor Hut (see image on the right). The five-minute video features spectacular photography by Ranger Rob Cala, welcomes visitors to the reserve and educates them about how to visit the Marine Protected Area in a way that encourages discovery while protecting marine life. The video can also be viewed on our Fitzgerald Marine Reserve page.
