One of the important features of Tesla Park is its location. All of Tesla Park is located in eastern Alameda County. The western most boundary of the park is at the 6.5 mile mark from the Concannon/Tesla Road intersection in Livermore and is actually closer to downtown Livermore than the main entrance to Del Valle Regional Park or Brushy Peak Preserve. A portion of the park land is on the western watershed and drains into the Arroyo Seco. East Bay Regional Park District has long identified the Tesla park land as a potential regional preserve.
Although Tesla is solidly in the East Bay, it is also readily accessible to San Joaquin and Stanislaus counties in the Central Valley along Corral Hollow Road. Tesla Park matches the State Parks’ priority park and recreation facility targets and its objective to provide more low impact nature parks for Central Valley residents.
Tesla Park’s central location that provides broad access to a low impact historic and nature park within a native habitat and wildland setting makes its historic and natural resource diversity all the more important. Tesla Park is a spectacularly beautiful park that is part of the East Bay and would expand needed park and preservation opportunities for Eastern Alameda County as well as the Central Valley.
