Attended a meeting of the San Francisco Bay Restoration Authority last week as the representative from the South Bay. We heard about Phase II of the South Bay Salt Pond Restoration project that will restore wetlands in the Alviso and Eden Landing areas.

I was really happy to see part of the new trails being added will be a connection from Eden Landing in Hayward to the Alameda Creek Trail (the purple/white line in the photo). They are also including a new bridge across the creek. This will allow cyclists like me to go all the way from San Leandro to Don Edwards without having to get on any major roadways. The Bay Trail along the East Bay is is one of my favorite bike rides.
