Beach closure next week

The East Bay Regional Park District will close Crown Beach from Park Street to Westline Drive from Tuesday, April 2, to Friday, April 5. The closure is necessary so work crews can move accumulated sand and spread it along the beach. This marks the second and final phase of the district's annual sand-moving project; the first phase ran from March 18 to 22. The district asks that the public stay off the beach while scrapers and bulldozers are working. The beach at Crab Cove is not affected and will remain open.
