PLEASANTON -- Public access to the 7,473-acre Pleasanton Ridge Regional Park will be improved with the construction of two new park entrances and expansion of a third, the East Bay Regional Park Board decided Tuesday.
Approval of the land use plan for the park authorizes the changes, but the park board will determine the timing of the projects in its annual budget deliberations over the next 15 years.
The vote to approve the plan was 7-0.
Planned improvements include the 70-space Garms parking lot at Foothill Road and Las Positas Boulevard in Pleasanton, and the 90-space Tyler Ranch lot at the southwest end of Foothill Boulevard.
Park officials also plan to expand the existing park entrance on Foothill Boulevard near Sunol from 50 to 75 parking spaces.
Also planned are campgrounds, a Devany Canyon trailhead off Dublin Boulevard to enter the park on foot or bicycle, and 29 new miles of trails in the park, including one to Tehan Falls.
