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.

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.
