The East Bay Regional Park system is beautiful and well maintained system of trails throughout hills of Alameda County to Contra Costa county. I have been walking the trails in Sibley Park mainly for over 15 years. Unfortunately over the past five years or so, the park has become the place for hired dog-walkers to take their dogs. It's a...

I ran the trails for years with three different dogs and the dogs loved the trails as much as I did. People are friendly and helpful to each other. It's total freedom walking or running through Redwood Park. Springtime paints the hillsides with Chinese Forget-me-nots, poppies, lupine, buttercups and tons more. Visit their website for a wildflower identification guide.

East Bay Regional Park district is actually a string of contiguous parks -- preserved land running along the ridge to the east of Richmond, Berkeley, Oakland, San Leandro, and further south. It is accessed in many places, especially from Grizzly Peak Drive in Berkeley and Skyline Blvd. in Oakland. In addition, it includes protected watershed areas around the East Bay's... More

More than 40 units of the East Bay Regional Parks are spangled across Alameda and Contra Costa Counties east of San Francisco Bay. Roberts Regional Recreation Area keeps the City of Oakland from spilling over the East Bay Hills into the town of Orinda while offering protection for second growth redwood forest and California oak. These lands provide habitat for... More

Get the seasonal pass - free parking & a dog walking pass. We have a Border Collie & she loves this. So much to do - haven't even scratched the surace yet!

EBRPD has the most interesting areas to walk, hike and take your dog off-leash. These lands owned by the Park District keep expanding to ensure that all residents of the East Bay have access to nature.

Just took our boys for a 3.5 mile hike today and it was awesome as always! I love all the different trails and also how there are so many off leash trails for the four legged ones. I also love how it's not so crowded and you end up running into the same people and the same dogs if you... More

My husband and I have been biking, hiking, running and having fun in this park for years. The park is very large with many trails (with beautiful views of the Bay Area), there are very nice picnic sites, a fun & interesting steam train & merry go-round (for kids and adults), botanic garden and much more.

I have two dogs and live near EBRPD trails that are wonderful for a short walk or long hike. One of the best free things to do in the Bay Area.

We try to walk daily for an hour with our West Highland Terrier. She is always leashed. Most dogs are leashed and most owners control their dogs. In a couple years, we have experienced one leashed dog out of control and lunging at our Westy. My wife took a bad fall. Trail patrols are infrequent. But, they do occur. I... More
