On a trial basis, the District has REOPENED the reclamation area parking lot and trails to the public for the purpose of engaging in Essential Activities as defined in the Shelter in Place Order, including outdoor exercise. This access is contingent on compliance with social distancing practices when visiting the District’s property. Please click here for more information.
Please be aware that due to the construction on the Treatment Plant Upgrade project the walking paths may be closed on an intermittent basis. Click here for updates on this construction project.
Thank you for your understanding.
Walkers can enjoy birds floating or flying, wildflowers and the serenity of unobstructed views of San Pablo Bay, hills and wetlands on some 4 miles of public trails.
The 383 acre reclamation area includes 200 acres of pasture irrigation fields, two treated wastewater storage ponds and a freshwater pond with 3 islands to provide nesting sites. The three ponds store treated wastewater which provides a home to a variety of wildlife and migrating and resident birds. It is a favorite haunt for photographers, artists and recreation enthusiasts.
