East Bay Regional Park District

East Bay Regional Park District

East Bay Regional Park District 80 years logoThe East Bay Regional Park District spans Alameda and Contra Costa counties east of San Francisco with more than 120,536 acres in 65 parks and 1,250 miles of trails for hiking, biking, horseback riding, nature study—and, of course, dog walking/hiking.

The Park District offers lakes, shorelines, campgrounds, visitor centers, interpretive and recreation programs, picnic areas, indoor/outdoor rental facilities and much more. For dogs and the humans who follow, the EBRPD is one of the most dog-friendly entities in the state of California.

• Dogs must be leashed (six-foot maximum) and under control at any posted area, parking lot, picnic site, lawn or developed area. 

• Dogs may be off-leash in open space and undeveloped areas of parklands, provided they are under control at all times.

• Undeveloped areas are un-posted and unpaved trails or open space areas that are separated from developed areas by a distance of at least 100 yards or by fences.

• You must remove your dog’s waste from all park property and dispose of it in a garbage can or carry it out of the park.

• Do not leave dog waste in plastic bags along the trails as it is considered littering.

• For your convenience, plastic bags are provided in many parks and along some trails, but as a precaution, please carry extras with you.
