Oil Spill Updates

Published by under Oil Spill

It appears that the Albany Beach will remain closed for today. There are no new updates on the City of Albany website but ebparks.org is reporting “all parks open, some beach access limited”, but then goes on to say the Eastshore State Park is closed November 12. How much of the bulb is part of the Eastshore State Park, I’m not sure, but I believe it is the upper level plateau and the trails that lead out to the lower point (“the bulb”).

On Sunday Nov. 11, Berkeley City issued a proclamation restricting access to all Berkeley waterfront areas until further notice. Visitors are being asked to stay 50 feet away from the shoreline.
