The park is open from 5 a.m. to 10 p.m. Overnight use of the park, including camping and picnicking, is not allowed. Fishing from the pier, however, is allowed 24 hours daily. There is no parking fee or admission fee. Picnic tables are first-come, first-served and are not reservable.

PARK IMPROVEMENTS Improvements to the shoreline park and its facilities were completed in the spring of 2000. The park’s 7.5 acres have been landscaped and a number of disabled-accessible facilities have been installed. There are 10 picnic tables with barbecues dotting the 4.5-acre meadow area, all situated on wheelchair-friendly pads adjacent to paved trails, and disabled-accessible drinking fountains and a wheelchairfriendly restroom. There is drinking water available on the pier to accommodate thirsty fishers unable to leave their poles. Several wind screens are located along the pier’s length to provide shelter from the wind in colder weather. A fish cleaning station is located near the restrooms for the convenience of the park’s anglers. HISTORY Antioch/Oakley Regional Shoreline is operated by the East Bay Regional Park District on a no-cost lease from the State of California. The land was acquired in 1979 with the support of then-Senator John Nejedly, who later served as a State Parks commissioner. When the state constructed the new bridge (now named for Nejedly) that now passes over the park’s western edge, Nejedly suggested that some of the old bridge’s pillars be used for a fishing pier. This was done, and the new pier has been a great success. The pier is open around the clock for fishing, every day of the year. The park was renamed from Antioch Regional Shoreline to Antioch/Oakley Regional Shoreline in 1999 to commemorate the incorporation of Oakley in that year.

De Anza brought 198 colonists on his journey northward to the Bay region, located the sites of the Presidio of San Francisco and Mission Dolores for Spain, and explored the extent of the bay. On April 3, 1776, Father Font noted in his expedition diary that from this point he could see the Sierra Nevada to the east, the Sacramento Valley directly ahead, and the Diablo Range to the west. 100 200 IN ORDER TO REDUCE OR PREVENT THE RISK OF SERIOUS HEAD INJURY OR DEATH, STATE LAW REQUIRES THAT ALL BICYCLISTS UNDER AGE 18 WEAR AN APPROVED HELMET WHILE RIDING ON TRAILS AND ROADWAYS.
