Access for All

We believe in the right of all Californians to have access to recreational opportunities, and enjoy the cultural, historic, and natural resources found across the state.

While California tackles important global challenges, a critical challenge confronts us in our own communities: Too many Californians cannot access our state’s parks, beaches, and outdoor spaces, nor our state’s array of museums and cultural and historical sites. While many of us get outside into nature frequently, millions of Californians never have this opportunity. Given this, we need to expand all Californians’ access to parks, open space, nature and cultural amenities. This priority requires reshaping our funding and programs to expand opportunities to enjoy these places. Doing so advances Governor Newsom’s strong personal commitment to building a “California for All.”
