Fremont: Park district set to start work on quarry area with sweeping views

Story by our parks reporter Denis Cuff:

FREMONT — A rare overnight campground along San Francisco Bay will be the centerpiece of a new, $12 million regional recreation area to be built at the site of an old rock quarry.

In a gain for public access to the Bay shoreline, the East Bay Regional Park District and Fremont are scheduled to break ground Wednesday on the Dumbarton Quarry Regional Area — an addition to Coyote Hills Regional Park.

Scheduled to open in 2017, the first phase of the 91-acre recreation area also will feature picnic areas, an amphitheater, and a small playground.

The hottest attraction, however, is expected to be a campground for 63 recreational vehicles in an area with sweeping views of the San Francisco Bay and Silicon Valley.
