Fun Facts about East Bay Regional Parks

For many people, East Bay Regional Parks have provided a lifetime of memories. Whether it’s taking a first hike, catching a first fish, or riding the steam train at Tilden, many of us have lasting memories and a deep appreciation of the Park District’s beautiful parks, shorelines, and trails.

  • In the 1920s, civic leaders came together with a vision: preserve the land forever and balance environmental conservation with public enjoyment.
  • In the heart of the Great Depression, a measure on the ballot established the Park District and taxed residents for land preservation. The measure passed by 71 percent – even during trying times and economic instability.
  • On June 4, 1936, the District purchased land from the East Bay Municipal Utility District to create its first three parks – Upper Wildcat Canyon (Tilden), Temescal, and Roundtop (Sibley).
  • Today, the East Bay Regional Park District includes 73 parks, 125,000 acres of open space, and 55 miles of shoreline.

Encompassing Alameda and Contra Costa counties, the East Bay Regional Park District provides residents with access to nature close to home. Wherever you live in the East Bay, there is a Regional Park close to you available for hiking, biking, swimming, horseback riding, boating, fishing, picnicking, camping, and nature discovery.ParkFest-SaveTheDate-2 Thanks to EBRPD for sponsoring this post.
