General Information

Description - Antioch / Oakley Shoreline is operated by the East Bay Regional Park District on a no-cost lease from the State of California. The land was acquired in 1979 with the support of then-Senator John Nejedly, who later served as a State Parks commissioner. When the state constructed the new bridge, now named for Nejedly, that now passes over the park's western edge, Nejedly suggested that some of the old bridge's pillars be used for a fishing pier. This was done, and the new pier has been a great success.

The park was renamed from Antioch Regional Shoreline to Antioch / Oakley Regional Shoreline in 1999 to commemorate the incorporation of Oakley in that year.

Attractions - A 550-foot pier provides access to great fishing in the San Joaquin River at Antioch / Oakley Regional Shoreline, located just upstream from Highway 160's Nejedly Bridge in Antioch. Swimming is not allowed at the shoreline park, but fishing, picnicking and kite flying are all favorite pastimes. Overnight use of the park, including camping and picnicking, is not allowed.

There is no parking fee, admission fee, or dog fee. Picnic tables are first-come, first-served and are not reservable. Antioch/Oakley Regional Shoreline is open 5 AM to 10 PM unless otherwise posted.

Recreation - Fishing, picnicking and kite flying are pursued at this shoreline park.

The fishing pier is open 24 hours daily, year-round. Depending on the season, fish that can be caught from the pier include striped bass, channel catfish, Sacramento pike, sturgeon, steelhead and salmon. A fishing license is required for all anglers aged 16 or older.

Climate - Climate in the San Francisco Bay area varies greatly with elevation and the amount of coastal influence. Areas with more coastal influence experience moderate temperatures year round with fog likely from June through mid-August. Plan your coastal visit in the late summer or fall to ensure the best conditions for viewing the scenery. Also, occasional clear days between winter and spring storms are incomparable. Areas further inland experience greater temperature extremes, with relatively cooler winters and hot summers. Inland areas often receive frost on winter nights. As throughout most of California most of the precipitation comes in the winter months, with April through October normally very dry.

Location - From Highway 160 in Oakley / Antioch, exit at Wilbur Avenue (the last exit before the bridge). Turn right on Wilbur, then immediately left on Bridgehead Road. The park is at the north end of Bridgehead Road.
