The parks district has something for everyone. Hiking, picnics, horseback, merry go round, boating, swimming. Even golf. And very cheap to free. Well maintained trails - lots of choices to get away - all along the East Bay.

Redwood Park along with others in the Park District are outstanding outdoor areas. There's a feeling of being far away from the urban noise and yet close enough to a short 1/2 day to full day trip.

This park system is huge, and there is a lot here. Lakes, hiking, biking, ball fields. And some reservoirs. Very important to the region.

Climbing Inspiration Point is special when it's a beautiful day. You can hike as long as you wish and however long it is is just right.
