We've enjoyed so many of the EBR Parks over the years it's impossible to pick a favorite. We are lucky to have all the urban open space the EBRP looks after and we hope visitors will enjoy one or more of these parks.

There is no way to describe just how wonderful the Park District is. It is a greenbelt that surround the east bay cities, and it is wilderness. Wonderful trails, stunning views.
