#1 of 9 in Parks in Tri-Valley
Del Valle Regional Park is a part of the East Bay Regional Park District (EBRPD) in unincorporated Alameda County, California, 10miles south of the city of Livermore. The park covers 4,316 acres (~17.47 km2., ~6.74 sq. mi.).General descriptionThe park largely surrounds Lake Del Valle, an artificial reservoir made in 1968 by damming Arroyo Valle, a small river. The lake provides a source of recreation for visitors including swimming, fishing, and boating. There are lifeguards present at designated swimming areas. The park also offers 28 miles (~45.1 km) of hiking, horseback, and bicycle trails, in addition to 150 camping sites. It is the eastern gate for the Ohlone Wilderness Trail.The park can be approached from Mines or Arroyo Road, where the parking meter is often broken.Damage from flooding in 2017Del Valle Regional Park suffered widespread damage from the unusually heavy rains that struck the East Bay in early 2017. Much of the damage was around Lake Del Valle, where runoff overflowed five times into beaches, campgrounds and picnic areas. Some of the trails were washed out and needed to be rebuilt. The park was closed for nearly three months, before reopening on April 15, 2017. EBRPD estimated the cost to repair this park alone at $1.8 billion, and said the cost would rise further if the rains continued.

  • I always love coming to Del Calls. It's clean. A great walk. There are always people there so of ur looking for no people don't go there. But running to the top on the hill is a great workout.
  • Absolutely beautiful to just be sitting here in our backyard. 15 minutes away if you live downtown Livermore with wine tasting, massive rolling green hills, and shimmering lakes and ponds. The wildflowers and park environment that engage the people with the world that lies right under them is a testimony to the parks system.
  • Beautiful day! Good green hills to hike. Great view of the lake from the dam side under the oak tree bench on the ridge.
  • such a fun place to go and relax your mind from any stress you may have, but you must like the wild and have time to explore and release your true self
  • Never thought this amazing place would be so close to us . Went there and all through the way we had wine yard and beautiful scenic view . Once entering the park the mountains covered with grass , tree and the exotic river no words to express. Nature here is a blessing . One can enjoy a leisure day leaving all the worries behind and enjoy the day . Boating , fishing and hiking is all allowed here . Get ready to visit this place with all accessories so that enjoying the sun and the river would be soulful .
