One California state park remains on the closure list!

And then there was ONE!

One out of 70…!

On Friday, the California Department of Parks and Recreation said that all but ONE state park will remain open past this weekend. According to the Sacramento Bee:

The Benicia State Recreation Area, California State Mining and Mineral Museum, Gray Whale Cove State Beach and Zmudowski State Beach will continue operating “for the very near term,” according to Natural Resources Agency spokesman Richard Stapler. The four state parks lack interest from outside partners, but Stapler said the hope is that they can find donors or nonprofits to spare them.

That spares the California State Mining and Mineral Museum, which was slated to close, as I reported earlier Friday.

Only Providence Mountains State Recreation Area (in San Bernardino County), which has been closed since March, remains on the closure list.. The park will not reopen unless it can find a partnership.
