Everyone is invited to join California State Parks in celebrating Mount Diablo State Park’s 100th year, through the remainder of 2021. A ceremony and a celebration will also be held from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Oct. 16, 2021 at Cal State East Bay Concord campus, 4700 Ygnacio Valley Rd. in Concord.

The mountain’s distinctive natural features and picturesque views from the summit that extend over 100 miles in all directions are the reason why this mountain holds a special place in the hearts of the surrounding community and led to it becoming a park in 1921.

Since it became a state park, Mount Diablo has been protected as a natural area, and over the past 100 years, the park has grown to more than 20,000 acres. Today, it is the favorite go-to place for those who would like to experience beautiful views, wildlife, hike, camp, picnic, run, cycle, climb, ride horses, and more.
