Reservoir1

The Oakland Redwoods are filled with peaceful groves, tall trees, distant views, and a warm to cool climate in the summer. The park's 1,829 acres contain Redwood, Pine, Eucalyptus trees, and other species, evergreens, chaparral, and grasslands. Wildlife within the park, include rare species such as the golden eagle and the Alameda striped racer snake. Deer, raccoons, rabbits, and squirrels are also often seen. There are many different species of birds as well.

Reservoir2

Redwood Creek, which runs through the park, also has a place in history. The world-famous rainbow trout were first identified as a distinct species, from specimens caught in San Leandro Creek. Redwood Creek is a tributary of San Leandro Creek and spawning grounds for the trout. The adult trout migrate from a downstream reservoir outside the park. A Denil Fishway has been constructed near the park's Redwood Road entrance, to help the trout reach their spawning grounds, in Redwood Regional Park.
