Fort Bragg’s Family-Friendly City Parks

Fort Bragg’s Family-Friendly City Parks
Fort Bragg / Noyo Harbor

Noyo Headlands Park, home to the famous Glass Beach, offers 4.5 miles of trails along the bluff top overlooking spectacular ocean views. This is the crown jewel of the city’s park system, and its newest park. The trail, part of the California Coast Trail, provides the first public access to Fort Bragg’s rocky coastline since the 1800s. Access is via Elm Street to the north and Cypress Street to the south. Open 24 hours.

Pomo Bluffs Park offers gorgeous views from the southern bluffs above Noyo Harbor. This 25-acre park offers outlook points and benches, coastal pedestrian and bike trails, and interpretive exhibits. From Hwy 1 take Ocean View Drive to Cliff Way to get there. Open dawn to dusk.

Otis R. Johnson Wilderness Park is located at the east end of Laurel Street, southeast of Fort Bragg Middle School. This 7-acre park offers shady walking trails and a close-up experience with nature, including old-growth and second-growth redwood trees. Charming wooden footbridges cross a stream that has undergone extensive aquatic restoration. Open 7am to 8pm May through October and 7am to 5pm November through April.

Harold O. Bainbridge Park is designed for the whole family to enjoy. The park offers tennis courts, a basketball court, and open space to play or spread a blanket and enjoy an afternoon picnic. Its Wiggly Giggly Playground is located on Laurel Street, between North Harrison and North Whipple Streets, across from the Fort Bragg Library. It offers swing sets, slides and equipment of all shapes and sizes to climb, hide in, run around and hang from. The park is open 7am to 10pm.
