Welcome to SAVE TESLA PARK
In the late 1990s the State of California Parks Department purchased about 3, prescription
400 acres in the southeast corner of Alameda County along the Tesla-Corral Hollow Road. The original intent of the purchase was to expand the existing adjacent Carnegie State Vehicular Recreation Area (SVRA ) off-highway vehicle (OHV) park into the Tesla Park land.
But as the plans for expansion of the Carnegie SVRA were studied, the devastating impacts of off-highway vehicle use on the unique and fragile Tesla Park land were identified. Proposals for an alternative use plan began to evolve. The goal of Tesla Park as a non-OHV, low impact recreation historic and natural resource preserve was formed.
Tesla Park is not the official name yet, but with your help it can be.
Friends of Tesla Park is an alliance of individuals and organizations working to SAVE TESLA PARK. We are dedicated to protecting the biologically unique and culturally significant landscape known as Tesla Park as a non-OHV historic and natural resource preserve.
