Mission and Vision
The East Bay Regional Park District is a system of beautiful parklands in Alameda and Contra Costa counties to the east of San Francisco. The system comprises 73 parks spanning across 125,000 acres; 1,250 miles of trails; 55 miles of shoreline. We manage and preserve natural and cultural resources for all to enjoy and protect. The regional parks are ideal for healthful recreation and environmental education. Learn about our Mission and Vision and our contributions to the United Nations 17 Sustainable Development Goals.
The Park District is the fruition of almost nine decades of vision, advocacy, and hard work of a vast network of supporters -- environmental activists, elected district directors, general managers, district employees, community leaders, public officials, volunteers, and taxpayers -- who collaborated to ensure access for all to a system of magnificent regional parklands and shorelines.
The District Awarded Prestigious UN Award
On October 24, 2021, the Park District was awarded the Global Citizen Award by the United Nations Association USA, East Bay and Silicon Valley Chapters at the virtual 76th UN Day celebration.
