“Healthy Parks Healthy People—East Bay Regional Park District at 85” is a beautiful hardcover coffee table book that celebrates the history and the beauty of the parks, trails, and shoreline that make up the San Francisco East Bay park system.
Starting in the late 1920s, thousands of acres of pristine watershed land became available for development. Farsighted civic leaders wanted to preserve the land forever. They enlisted the aid of landscape architect, Frederick Law Olmsted Jr. and the National Park Services Chief Naturalist, Ansel Hall. The two recommended a novel approach, a regional system to manage more than 10,000 acres for future parklands. In 1934, voters approved the measure for the first regional park agency in the nation.
