On my way to Concord I stopped by at Willow Pass Road/Avila Road to take a few photos of the old Concord Naval Weapons Station land that will become Concord Hills Regional Park. 60% of the former base, totaling over 2,600 acres of grasslands, oaks and spectacular views in the hills between Concord and Pittsburg, will become part of the East Bay Regional Park District. The plan for new park is to offer hiking and mountain bike trails, camping, equestrian facilities, preservation of the old Navy buildings, or all of the above. There is also the possibility for a joint visitors center with the National Park Service honoring the history of the Port Chicago Naval Magazine National Memorial.
