A section of the Delta de Anza Regional Trail, between James Donlon and Somersville in Antioch, will be closed for two days Monday and Tuesday, October 27 and 28, for seal-coating of trail.

Del Valle Regional Park

Drought conditions affect Del Valle park usage: East Bay Regional Park District will not be accepting reservations beyond Sun, Nov 2. This includes camping, picnicking, swimming, or special events. Beginning Wed, Oct 1, only half of the family campground will be open for camping. 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.

Park Visitors should be aware that even though the park is open, drought conditions are in effect: lawns will be brown and lake levels may be too low for swimming, boating or fishing in some areas by the middle of the September. 

Existing reservations prior to Sun, Nov 2, 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.

Enjoy our lake and stay safe. Download: Information Flyer Adobe Acrobat PDF

Quarry Lakes Regional Recreation Area

In September and October 2014, the Alameda County Water District will undertake a levee breach repair between Stevenson Pond and Logo Los Osos. This repair work will result in the closure of the Western Pacific Trail from Old Creek Trail south to Niles Gate, the park boundary and Alameda Creek Trail. The trail closure will be mostly weekdays during business hours. The trail will be open after 5 p.m. on weekdays and open on weekends. See Stevenson Pond-Lago Los Osos Diversion Repair for more information.

The accessible fishing pier at Quarry Lakes in Fremont remains closed even though the construction project by Alameda County Water District (ACWD) is completed. That project was to improve fish passage for threatened steelhead trout. The accessible fishing pier will be reopened for public use when the water level returns to a level that supports its use to ADA standards.
