Oyster Bay Regional Shoreline
Temporary Closure of Water Fountain and Trail Section
The section of trail that goes directly uphill from the Neptune Drive entrance will be temporarily closed so that contractors can install an irrigation line for the Tree Screening Project located at the park boundary with the Waste Management facility. The Project will also extend the drinking water line throughout the park. The drinking water fountain will be temporarily unavailable during Project construction. The drinking water fountain to be available for public use after the Tree Planting Project is complete in 2017. Until then, please remember to bring drinking water for you and your dogs.

On-Going Soil Delivery and Grading Work
Trucks will be delivering soil to Oyster Bay Regional Shoreline weekdays beginning March 30, 2015. The project, which is expected to continue through 2017, is part of the Park District’s ongoing efforts to build up the topography of the park to meet the standards of the District’s Oyster Bay Land Use Plan Amendment adopted in 2013. The Spring 2016 Opportunity Fill & Grading effort will prepare for installation of the first phase of the Disc Golf Course, which will consist of 18 holes. A nesting bird survey was completed and no nests were found. Please observe signs about areas that might be closed to the public during this process. Thank you!

Oyster Bay Regional Shoreline is a former landfill, closed in the early 1970s, and acquired by the District in the 1980’s for future park development. Since that time the District has been importing fill soil to the site to ensure landfill requirements for adequate cap and surface drainage that minimizes infiltration. In recent years the goal has been to provide for/maintain access for existing passive recreation uses such as dog walking, hiking, and picnicking while converting the site into parkland for the future development of active recreation areas such as disc golf and bicycle skills and to provide parking within the park. To complete this transformation, the Park District is placing soil to promote future tree growth and grading the park to create landforms that provide for a variety of public use areas.
Oyster Bay Land Use Plan Amendment
The District’s Board of Directors approved the Land Use Plan Amendment (LUPA) and adopted the Mitigated Negative Declaration (MND) for Oyster Bay Regional Shoreline on December 17, 2013. The LUPA will guide the future development of Oyster Bay Regional Shoreline including a new primary access and parking, formalization of the trail system, resource management, a bicycle skills area, a disc golf course, and a dedicated off-leash dog area. The MND analyzed the potentially significant environmental impacts that could result from implementation of the LUPA and adopted mitigation measures to ensure that environmental impacts remain at a less than significant level.
Currently, District staff is proceeding with design of the Davis Street Access, the bicycle skills area, and the disc golf course. Please contact Michelle Julene, Park Planner, at firstname.lastname@example.org or (510)544-2351 for additional information.

Seven group picnic areas (non-reservable) are nestled among the tree berms and newly planted turf along the multipurpose trails. These interior trails lead to a view site topped by Roger Berry's sculpture titled "Rising Wave." The perimeter trail affords sweeping Bay vistas. The two mile Bay Trail around the perimeter is paved from the Neptune entrance to the “Bill Lockyer Bridge.” Toilet facilities are located by the picnic area and new lawn area.
From I-880 in San Leandro, exit at Marina Blvd. and drive west. Turn right onto Neptune Drive. Parking is at the end of Neptune Drive.
