OPEN Spaces To Close due to extreme Fire Danger
The National Weather Service has issued a Red Flag Warning beginning Wednesday evening and lasting through Tuesday morning. Wind gusts are expected to pick up significantly, resulting in extreme fire danger.
The City of Concord is again closing its open space areas with developed walking trails, including Lime Ridge Open Space and portions of Newhall Park. Lime Ridge parking lots at Treat Boulevard and Montecito Drive will also be closed.
The closures will take place beginning this Wednesday, Oct. 21, through Tuesday, Oct. 27. City staff has consulted with the Contra Costa County Fire Protection District and determined that closing the open space is in the best interest of public safety and preservation of the natural environment.
PG&E has also warned of a possible Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS) event for much of the Bay Area. However, the most recent update does NOT show Concord as affected by this. For updates, please visit: https://pgealerts.alerts.pge.com/updates/

Help us shape the future of Ellis Lake Park
The City of Concord is partnering with First 5 Contra Costa County and Monument Impact to pursue a State of California grant for improvements to Ellis Lake Park, and we need your input! Designing the improvements with significant community input will encourage higher usage, better protection, and a safer environment. Our goals include:
- Selecting and designing recreation features
- Locating the selected recreation features within the park
- Identifying safe public use and park beautification ideas
If awarded, this State grant will provide funding for future programming, amenities, and operational needs of the park. Learn more about the Prop. 68 grant opportunity.
Resident input will help guide the plan to ensure the park improvements reflect the needs and desires of the community. Please click here to view and register for future meeting dates.
