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.
