Sprucing up Shadow Cliffs

Interpretive center, pavilion, dog park among suggestions made at recent park scoping meeting

An interpretive center to educate children and adults about the ecological system and how the lake is replenished. A dog park that would offer pet owners another place to take their pooches in town complete with a dog wash, agility course and swimming hole. A pavilion where families could hold anniversary or birthday parties and businesses could host company picnics. These were among the suggestions made for improving Shadow Cliffs Regional Recreation Area at a recent scoping meeting hosted by the East Bay Regional Park District.

Earth-to-East Bay Regional Park District: There is no money for your wish list. The state, counties, cities and federal governments are bleeding red. PW, why waste ink on this non-story?

One final point: It's stated in the article that EBRPD owns and manages Shadow Cliffs. The taxpayers of Alameda and Contra Costa Counties own Shadow Cliffs. EBRPD manages it.
