Open-water swimming at Crown Memorial State Beach and Miller/Knox Regional Shoreline is not restricted. No lifeguards are provided at shoreline beaches; swim at your own risk.

Shadow Cliffs and Quarry Lakes will be closed for the 2021 season due to low water levels.

Del Valle, Lake Anza, and Temescal are currently closed due to unsafe cyanobacteria (blue-green algae) levels. Water quality is evaluated regularly to determine if safe levels will permit reopening.

The East Bay Regional Park District swim facilities include six open-water lakefront beaches, three chlorinated lagoons, two pools, and two bay shoreline beaches. Before visiting any swim facilities, review the official swimming Visitor Rules and Regulations. [PDF]
