About The Park
An astonishing diversity of wildlife can be seen at this shoreline park under development just south of Oakland International Airport. Marsh hawks, black-shouldered kites, red-tailed hawks, and shorebirds abound. Views of the Bay are spectacular.

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.
The drinking fountain at Neptune Dr. is temporarily out of order. The new East Bay Municipal Utility District (EBMUD) standards require that potable water lines are separate from irrigation lines even though a back-flow device is installed. The Park District has applied to EBMUD to install a new water meter. The park used to be a landfill, and with the new drinking water standards the Park District awaits approval from EBMUD to install a new water meter.
Current development at the Park
Oyster Bay Regional Shoreline is a former landfill, closed in the early 1980s, that is undergoing conversion into a parkland. To complete the conversion, the Park District is hauling in soil to support trees and turf, placing it and grading it for proper runoff. The fill has been tested for hazardous materials and has been approved for placement. This activity has been ongoing and will continue through the summer, and may result in temporary trail closures. It is part of a development plan that includes creation of an entrance at Davis Street that will allow automobile access and parking within the park (download Phase 2 diagram). The beginnings of this new park access road can be seen near the existing service yard. Development of the park will continue for several years. For more information, contact Mike Anderson, Assistant General Manager for Planning/Stewardship & Development, at email@example.com or 510-544-2303.
