In March of 1977, an agreement between the Orange County Harbors, Beaches and Parks District and the Jack G. Raub Company was signed. The agreement delegated the Jack G. Raub Company for the responsibility for preparation of a General Development Plan and contract document for Capistrano Beach Park. Capistrano Beach Park was opened to the public in 1980.
OC Parks is taking action and developing a long-term strategy to preserve public access and amenities at Capistrano Beach after coastal erosion seriously damaged a walkway.
The beach has long battled debris and damage during strong tidal conditions, and after a large storm in November 2018, the wooden boardwalk collapsed. OC Parks filed an emergency permit with the California Coastal Commission for temporary stabilization measures.
The area around the existing basketball courts and restroom building were seriously compromised. Removing the courts and restroom was necessary for public safety and to prevent further damage that could lead to ocean debris and pollution.
Making Orange County a safe, healthy, and fulfilling place to live, work, and play, today and for generations to come, by providing outstanding, cost-effective regional public services.
