The Eastshore State Park is very much a work in progress. There are plans for at least 5 parts of the park starting with the Point Isabel Area (near Richmond/El Cerrito) in the north and reaching down to the Emoryville Crescent (near Oakland). I explored the area where they will build "The Brickyard Area" and "Berkeley Meadow". I do not know how the current financial crisis in the state will affect these plans. Hopefully not more than a postponement. As of September 2009 "The Brickyard Area", which is located by the Berkeley Marina, has little more than a walking path, a few benches and some nice views of the bay. It is still worth checking out when you are in the area.
