East Bay Regional Park District

The 4th of July weekend is one of the busiest times of year for Regional Parks. If you plan to visit, expect full parking lots and crowded parks. CONSIDER THESE TIPS:
⏰ Go early before parking lots are full, or try another less-frequented park.
🎆🔥 Fireworks are NOT allowed in Regional Parks, trails or shorelines.
🚗👮🏼 Park safely and properly to avoid parking tickets. If there is no parking available, come back at a less crowded time or day. Illegal parking will be ticketed to maintain safety and emergency vehicles access.
💧😎 Bring water, sunscreen, and stay in the shade to protect yourself from the heat.
👍🏼🌞🏞️ Check our website for up-to-date info and enjoy the long weekend! www.ebparks.org

Video: Addressing Sudden Tree Die-Off in Regional Parks

The Park District recently launched a major project to remove approximately 1,000 acres of dead trees in Regional Parks. The extreme amount of tree die-off in Regional Parks, first noticed in October 2020, is a major wildfire safety concern. Dead trees burn hotter, faster and are more likely to cast burning embers ahead of the original fire, creating spot fires. Sudden tree mortality and dieback is a regional issue that is affecting the entire Bay Area region.

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.

I'm looking forward to Two Day Town which should easily be allowed in late April. By now I'm sure that the EBRPD is aware that being outdoors is very safe with minimal danger from cold and flu viruses. Outdoor safety is even mentioned in Gov Newsom's April Decree
I read about the murder of cats you all did in 2020 that is horrible in our state there is Tommie's Law people are arrested for such a thing. There is some kind of federal law as well. No need to kill the poor cats we have cats they are loving and sweet animals take the time to find a good rescue. Do not kill!
The “Full” parking lot. Seriously East Bay Regional Parks - you need to do better. Everyone is parking miles away on the city streets.
Yesterday morning I hiked the Ohlone Trail from Del Valle to OT-38 via Stromer Spring Rd. I noticed that a lot of the beautiful natural rock features had been bulldozed but there was no evidence of ANY burned area's. The area that was dozed never had bushes or trees, just rocks, boulders and short grass.

This parks management and staff is evil! Shooting and killing 18 cats instead of rehoming them somewhere else? Your values don't refelct your actions. You are hypocrites and Karma will have it's way with the shooters and all who planned the shootings.
Is reopening Ardenwood Farms dependent on Alameda County moving from purple to red tier?

AHOY! Do you have any more info on the date of reopening the Ohlone Wilderness Trail out of Del Valle? A Park Ranger told me it might be at the end of the month. I plan to be the first one hiking up Sailor Camp rd or the Vallacitos Trail to Murrieta Falls and back
