Bike Touring Highlight (Segment)
Oyster Bay Regional Shoreline is a park in San Leandro, California, part of the East Bay Regional Park District. It is located along the eastern shore of San Francisco Bay directly to the south of Oakland International Airport. Oyster Bay Regional Shoreline is a former landfill, closed in the early 1970s, and acquired by the East Bay District in the 1980’s for future park development. Since that time the District has been importing fill soil to the site to ensure landfill requirements for adequate cap and surface drainage that minimizes infiltration. In recent years the goal has been to provide for/maintain access for existing passive recreation uses such as dog walking, hiking, and picnicking while converting the site into parkland for the future development of active recreation areas such as disc golf and bicycle skills and to provide parking within the park. To complete this transformation, the Park District is placing soil to promote future tree growth and grading the park to create landforms that provide for a variety of public use areas. ebparks.org/parks/oyster_bay
