Park Information

Healdsburg Veterans Memorial Beach offers access to the Russian River for wading, swimming, paddling and sunbathing and also features shady picnic areas, lawns, a par course and restrooms. 

Each summer, the wide, sandy beach just south of the city's historic, steel-truss Memorial Bridge is staffed with lifeguards and is a popular destination for playing in the river. 

  • Free loaner life vests are available for use during the summer.
  • All-terrain wheelchairs are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Park staff will assist with the check-out/check-in process.
  • Leashed dogs are allowed on the lawn and in parking lot but not on the beach or in the river. 
  • Alcohol consumption is not allowed in the park.
  • The seasonal dam at the beach will not be installed in 2022 due to projections for reduced river flows.

The parking area can fill by mid-day on summer weekends, and only limited off-street parking is available nearby.
