ParkFest: Celebrate 90 Years of East Bay Regional Parks


by CC News

On May 11, the East Bay Regional Park District will Host Parkfest, a 90th Birthday Celebration held at Lake Chabot Regional Park.

This year marks nine decades since a group of local leaders, inspired by some of America’s first conservationists, successfully brought the creation of the East Bay Regional Park District to residents. It’s time to celebrate the open space, parks, trails, safe and healthful recreation, and environmental education provided by that incredible vision 90 years ago. Please join East Bay Parks at its free birthday festival for the entire community.

“Taking this moment to reflect and commemorate our past will help us flourish in our next 90, even 100 years,” said Park District General Manager Sabrina Landreth. “We are the largest regional park district in the nation, we are highly regarded, well loved, and we look forward to growing more inclusive and accessible for our park visitors.”
