Encyclopedia

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Fort Ord Dunes State Park is a 979-acre state park on Monterey Bay, California, in the United States. It is currently undergoing restoration, and has been off-limits to the public.[1] It is slated to open to the public on March 3, 2009.[2]

The state park includes a boardwalk, a path to the beach, a four-mile road for walking and biking, and interpretive exhibits describing its former use as a military training area. As the dunes are a nesting area for sensitive species, public access is limited to the paths and trails.

History

The area was once part of the Fort Ord military installation and held 15 rifle ranges.[3]

Fort Ord Dunes State Park was one of the 48 California state parks proposed for closure in January 2008 by California's Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger as part of a deficit reduction program.[4]

Final property transfer of the park from Fort Ord to the California State Government took place in December, 2008.[5]
