Angel Island State Park Will Close to Visitors from November 3-7th
ANGEL ISLAND, Calif. – Angel Island State Park will close to the general public from Monday November 3 through Friday November 7, 2014 due to an island-wide road paving project. The closure will result in no ferry services, tours or visitor services being available in Angel Island State Park, while crews work on the paving project. Ferry services and visitor facilities will open and be fully available again on Saturday, November 8 at 8:00 a.m.
- All ferry service to the island will be suspended including service from San Francisco via the Blue and Gold Fleet or from Tiburon via the Angel Island Tiburon Ferry.
- The Angel Island Company’s tram, bicycle rentals and café will be closed.
- The park’s U.S. Immigration Station and Ayala Cove Visitor Center will be closed.
During the project, visitors may travel to the island by private boat, kayak or other water transportation. Some trails, and the Camp Reynolds and Fort McDowell campgrounds, will remain open only to those who can reach the island using private transportation. Designated pedestrian and cyclist walkways will be set up through construction zones. These walkways may be blocked intermittently to allow for construction activity and safety of pedestrians and cyclists.
The area of paving and road closure extends from the Ayala Cove boat dock area to the junction with Perimeter Road. This area will be closed to vehicle traffic for the duration of the project.
