Redwood Regional Park
by Bay Nature Staff on July 08, 2012
Not too far from the hustle of the city, the park delights visitors with its large, quiet, and shady redwood forest.
An extensive network of multi-use and hiking-only trails traverse the park—some of which were logging roads in the mid 19th century. Wildlife is abundant. Deer, raccoons, rabbits, and squirrels are year-round residents. Redwood Creek which descends through the center of the park provides spawning areas for rainbow trout which ascend the creek from the San Leandro reservoir. The fish climb a fish ladder located near the Redwood Road park entrance. The park is also a winter refuge for thousands of ladybugs.
