Welcome to the Monterey Peninsula Regional Park District website. Here you will find resources including meeting agendas and staff reports, employment and financial information, a park locator and trail maps, and the access permit application.



The Monterey Peninsula Regional Park District Team humbly thanks you for your trust, support, and helping pass Measure E with more than 71% of the vote! Your commitment to the protection and restoration of our region’s diverse natural resources, habitats, landscapes, plants, animals and cultural history ensures that these treasures will not only be here today and tomorrow – but that they will be here for future generations.  We look forward to nurturing and strengthening our relationship with you as we jointly celebrate our magnificent Central Coast.  Again, THANK YOU – we are sincerely grateful!

The MPRPD Board of Directors generally meets the second Wednesday of every month, at 6:00 p.m. at the Oldemeyer Center in Seaside. To join our electronic Board Meeting Agenda e-mail list, please send your request to the Board Clerk.
