EBRPD Will Accept Magee Acres of Open Space to Expand Sycamore Valley Open Space Preserve


The East Bay Regional Park District (EBRPD) will accept fee title and maintain into perpetuity 390 acres of newly donated open space to expand Sycamore Valley Open Space Preserve in Danville as part of the Magee Preserve development plan.

“Since 1998, the Park District has been acquiring land to create Sycamore Valley Open Space Preserve, a gorgeous publicly accessible Danville park stitched together by land dedications from six different housing developers over the years,” said Robert Doyle, General Manager, EBRPD. With the additional 390 acres, Sycamore Valley Open Space will reach a total of 1,085 acres with over 3.5 miles of new trails of beautiful vistas of Mount Diablo and the Tassajara Valley.

“We’re very excited to add these new acres which will help to complete Sycamore Valley Open Space Preserve,” said Doyle.

This info is being provided now to clarify the Park District’s long-standing interest in acquiring this land to expand the park.
