East Bay Regional Parks – Today and Tomorrow Sierra Club
July 11, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 8:15 pm
Join us at our next meeting for a fascinating and informative presentation by East Bay Regional Park District Director Colin Coffey. Colin will lead us on an armchair tour around the area parks and trails of the EBRPD, including the new Concord Hills Regional Park at the site of the former Naval Weapons Station south of Highway 4.
One of America’s premier park districts, the EBRPD was created in 1934 and now encompasses over 120,000 acres in Alameda and Contra Costa Counties. There are significant current developments in several area parks and major trails. Black Diamond Mines Regional Preserve is being expanded in land to its north and offers a recently expanded mine tour. To the south, a new area of parkland called Clayton Ranch is being prepared for opening to the public. Along Deer Valley Road, a new regional park is being developed at the former Roddy Ranch and adjacent valleys.
