The U.S. Bureau of Reclamation is updating its long-term plan for the Contra Loma Regional Park and the adjacent Antioch Community Park. The previous plan was written in 1975, before a population boom hit East Contra Costa County.[2]

The reservoir, which is owned by the Contra Costa Water District (CCWD), is available for year-round fishing and a lifeguarded swim lagoon for summertime swimming.[3] Fishing is allowed, but those who wish to fish must purchase a Daily Fishing Access Permit. There is also an access fee. The reservoir contains catfish, black and striped bass, bluegill, trout, and red-eared sunfish.

Biking is allowed. Alcoholic drinks are prohibited everywhere in the park.
