Nov. 1 Begins NO-BURN Season at Ocean Beach
SAN FRANCISCO - November 1 marks the beginning of the first NO-BURN season at Ocean Beach in Golden Gate National Recreation Area (GGNRA). Recreational beach fires will be prohibited at Ocean Beach through the end of February.
GGNRA’s No-Burn season coincides with the Bay Area Air Quality Management District's winter Spare the Air season when particulate matter pollution from wood burning and other sources can reach unhealthy levels in the Bay Area.
In addition to air quality, the four-month rest will allow GGNRA to remove the Ocean Beach fire pits for a thorough cleaning of both the pits and the beach.
Recreational fires are permitted only at the sites below and according to the regulations on this page. In addition to the universal fire regulations, see additional site-specific rules and regulations below:
Beach Fires (Ocean Beach & Muir Beach)
