Del Valle Regional Park

Drought conditions affect Del Valle park usage: East Bay Regional Park District will not be accepting reservations beyond Sunday, July 6, for Del Valle Regional Park in Livermore. This includes camping, picnicking, swimming or special events. Regrettably, this action is in response to the severe drought conditions affecting California and its impact on many Bay Area reservoir levels, including Del Valle. Anticipated low lake levels will impact the Park’s ability to maintain basic sanitary services for restrooms and drinking water. Drought conditions will also impact adequate fire protection resources and access to recreational uses at the lake.

Existing reservations prior to July 6, will be honored but are contingent upon adequate lake levels and water supplies. We apologize for any inconvenience. Please check back for regular drought and lake level updates for all regional parks.
