Don Castro Regional Park, Hayward, CA.........Texture from stock.xchng.........Photoshop CS6........Don Castro Regional Park is a 101-acre urban oasis on the boundary between Hayward and Castro Valley. The clear blue waters of the swim lagoon are a favorite with central Alameda County residents. The lagoon and adjacent lake were created in 1964 when the Alameda Flood Control and Water Conservation District dammed San Lorenzo Creek..........The lake, San Lorenzo Creek Reservoir, is maintained by Alameda County Public Works and is closed to boating and swimming. Fishing is available year round and hikers along the shore will discover a surprising wilderness in miniature, where turtles and frogs splash in the water, ducks rest in the reeds and raccoons and deer come down to drink at sunset. There is access to the Bay Area Ridge Trail, the Chabot to Garin trail and over five miles of trails in the Five Canyons Open Space. The adjacent lagoon is supplied with water from EBMUD, and a large shallow area is roped off especially for children.
