Most East Bay Regional Parks Closed Due to Fire Risk
Due to the extreme fire activity in the region, all East Bay Regional Parks are closed until further notice, except for some shoreline parks.
The Park District is currently experiencing an unprecedented number of wildfires in parks, including Round Valley Regional Preserve, Morgan Territory Regional Preserve, Del Valle Regional Park, Sunol Wilderness Regional Preserve, Ohlone Wilderness Regional Preserve, Mission Peak Regional Preserve, and Pleasanton Ridge Regional Park.
Paved regional trails are not affected by the closures and will remain open.
Extreme heat, poor air quality, and extreme fire dangers are expected throughout the week, adding to park safety concerns. While some parks are remaining open, the District is advising against using Regional Parks at this time due to poor air quality.
Parks remaining open are:
- Crown Beach State Park
- Hayward Regional Shoreline
- MLK Jr. Regional Shoreline
- McLaughlin East Shore State Park
- Oyster Bay Regional Shoreline
- Point Isabel Regional Shoreline
- Quarry Lakes Regional Recreation Area
