Urgent Notice: Glass Beach Closure until November 2014

Public access to Glass Beach will be closed from August 18, 2014 until November 30, 2014. The City of Fort Bragg is building a 93-acre park on a piece of the vacant industrial parcel south of Glass Beach, thereby opening up 3.5 miles of Fort Bragg coastline for walking. Key improvements include: 4.5 miles of new trails connecting Noyo Bridge with Pudding Creek Trestle; 2 new parking lots with welcome plazas and bathrooms. Other beaches to check out during the closure: Hare Creek Beach, Pudding Creek Beach, and most of MacKerricher SP. For more info about the closure, here is an update on the beach closure and the new park from the City of Fort Bragg.
