Keep Greater Distance if Running or Biking

Local health agency orders ask runners and bikers doing strenuous exercises to keep greater than six-feet distance from others since they may “more forcefully expel airborne particles.” The order also recommends that runners and bikers wear masks when possible. #KeepParksSafe

PRESERVATION

Founded in 1934, the East Bay Regional Park District preserves and protects over 121,000 acres of beautiful open space in Alameda and Contra Costa counties. Our 73 Regional Parks include critical wildlife habitats, shorelines, lakes, creeks, ranchlands, and historic sites.

PUBLIC ACCESS

Wherever you live in the two counties, there is a beautiful Regional Park within a 15-minute drive. Our Parks Express bus program brings underserved children, school groups, and seniors to the parks, while the Regional Parks Foundation’s Campership program enables low-income youth to attend summer camps. Many of our paved regional trails connect to public transit hubs and amenities.

STEWARDSHIP

We work to ensure a healthy and thriving ecosystem that protects wildlife and habitat. We adapt to the changing climate by restoring wetlands, repairing levees, thinning trees, monitoring algae blooms and building park facilities and trails above future 2080 seas levels. Additionally, our parklands remove carbon dioxide from the air, equivalent to the emissions of 60,000 vehicles annually.

RECREATION

There are over 1,250 miles of trails for hiking, biking and horseback riding, as well as picnic areas, campgrounds, swim facilities, and golf courses. As a leader of the Healthy Parks Healthy People movement, we invite you to experience physical, mental, and social health benefits by spending time in nature.

Rattlesnake giving us a lesson in Social Distancing yesterday, Las Trampas EBRP. Open images so you can see the other three better. 5/15/20. https://flic.kr/s/aHsmNfCj9E
Hi everyone. thank you for maintaining the beautiful parks. Please, my dog and I went for a hike at Carquinez Strait Regional Shoreline. specifically on the Hulet Hornbeck Trail and then the loop. While beautiful, I have NEVER seen so many ticks. Not even close. I had ten on me and my dog had many more. PLEASE post signs warning people. This was terrible and is dangerous as well!
Hi park rangers, why was the gate closed at Frederickson this morning? Also, there’s occasionally signs that say “parking lot closed from 7am-2pm tomorrow” but the signs stay up for several days and tomorrow is never specified and the lot isn’t closed. Can you be more specific and put dates on parking lot closures? And what are the closures for?
Spotted on the Alameda Creek trail behind the UC fire station
While enjoying the beauty of Sinbad creek at Pleasanton Ridge. I noticed this tree down. Upon closer inspection I see that it was knocked down and obviously done by heavy equipment. The tree had gouges way up on it's trunk (from a tractor??). The tree looked otherwise healthy with some new blossoms. Looking around the downed tree I see there's a trail behind it. Was the purpose to block the trail? Is this the EBRPD remedy for trail realignment or rehabilitation of trails?? removing a dead, sick or dangerous tree may seem appropriate, but knocking ddown what certainly appears to be a healthy tree is a CRIME! Was this done by EBRP employee's or sub-contractors working in the area? I'd certainly like to know. This is not the type of land administration I support with my yearly contributions.
Today a sign at the Ohlone entrance mentioned limited parking at Stanford, can you share the details?
I have to say that making today's board meeting unavailable in real time to the people who are out on the front lines, the people who's lives are being affected directly by what's being discussed, without any notification, is disrespectful and unacceptable. I personally waited for 2 hours for information about how my life was to proceed, only to be notified by a coworker that the live feed was not going to happen. Come on, people. You need to do better. We deserve better.
I understand that the Sunol Wilderness Regional Preserve is closed. I have a question. Is Welch Creek Road closed? (This is the road that connects Calaveras Road to the park and continues on to a residential neighborhood). Thanks in advance for clarification.
Are you going to be opening up more parks and trails given the seven Bay Area counties relaxing their shelter in place order as of May 4th?
I just wanted to thank the kind hiker who found my mom’s iPhone in Coyote Hills Regional Park early afternoon today (4/28), put it in a sealed bag, and placed it in tall grass near a trail sign. We were able to find it by tracking its location and calling it to find it in the grass. She was beside herself when she lost it and my dad called me to bike in and help her find it. Kindness abounds in the regional parks community!
Beautiful day, great hike with my daughter and pup!
