At a recent meeting in Oracle, one gentleman stated that Oracle State Park was closed. As of March 1 of this year, the Park is open 7 days a week! The Park opens at 7 am for hikers, bikers, etc and at 9 am the Kannally Ranch House and office are open. The Park closes at 5 pm. Picnicking, hiking, biking, horseback riding are always available. Special events, talks, music are all updated on the Oracle State Park website and weekly in the San Manuel Miner. Bring your friends, family, dogs on leash and come enjoy YOUR special Park.
