Description

Hayward Regional Shoreline contains over a thousand acres of marshlands and seasonal wetlands. The park’s levees, originally built for salt evaporation ponds, now provide visitors with long, flat paths along the bay that are perfect for biking, hiking, or jogging. Fishing is allowed at various points along the trail, but only with a license. Although the park is unshaded, the cool bay air is refreshing and makes this park a wonderful spot at almost any time of year. Park Hours: Between 5am and 10pm unless otherwise posted
