Contra Loma Regional Park
by Bay Nature Staff on July 08, 2012
Hike this grassy habitat for rattlesnakes, see birds forage the lake, or take the family for a swim at the chlorinated swimming lagoon during summer.
This 780-acre park connects to the Black Diamond Mines Regional Preserve. Visitors can enjoy hiking trails, picnic areas and an 80-acre reservoir. The reservoir is open year-round for fishing, and in the summer months for swimming and wind surfing. Anglers can try their luck at catching catfish, black and striped bass, bluegill, trout, and red-eared sunfish
