The water was cool but not cold. The sandy beach slopes shallowly into a non-swimmers area that is roomy and cordoned off. The swim area guarded by professional fire department lifeguards. We went during a weekday and it was not too crowded. Shade is available at some picnic sites up shore, but you may want to bring shade if you plan to stay on the beach for long.
There are water slides at the park, which we did not scout out this trip, as well as boat rentals, hiking (some trails are accessible) and fishing.Call for more information: 925-846-3000; Toll Free: 888-EBPARKS (888-327-2757), option 3, extension 4557.
