As part of the East Bay Regional Park District, dogs must be on leash in parking lots, developed areas and where posted, and under full voice control elsewhere, and there is a lot of elsewhere!
Notice: Due to the potential presence of toxic algae at Shinn pond and we recommended that you keep dogs away from the water.
Alameda Creek is Alameda County’s largest, and is home to a host of birds and other wildlife.
