The official name of the dam is James H Turner Dam. Access by Indian Creek Rd from Calaveras Rd (the reservoir is not open to the public).

San Antonio Slough
A marshy estuary formed where Indian Gulch (later Trestle Glen Creek), Wildwood Creek, Pleasant Valley Creek, and Glen Echo Creek came together to empty into San Antonio Estuary (now known as the Oakland Estuary or the Oakland Inner Harbor). This slough formed a significant barrier between the town of Oakland and other settlements to the east. The county arranged to have a bridge built across the mouth of the slough, but then proved unable to come up with the money to pay for the finished bridge. A lawyer named Horace W. Carpentier paid the bill in return for permission to collect tolls on the bridge. Dr Samuel Merritt, a dentist who had purchased large amounts of real estate around the slough, began work toward turning the slough into an attractive lake. In 1869, after Merritt had been elected mayor of Oakland, the Twelfth Street Dam was completed, along with an improved bridge. In later years, much of the slough was filled and covered with buildings.

Named for August L Schilling, who was a member of the family that made its fortune in the spice trade. August owned the Dumbarton Land Company and Arden Salt Company. In 1919 he harvested his first salt in a small works at Dumbarton Point. In 1923 he constructed Plant Number 1 northeast of the present Marshlands Rd along Jarvis Rd, and in 1926 the huge Plant Number 2 south of Central Ave in Newark. He bought huge tracts of wetlands and gradually expanded his salt operations around the south end of San Francisco Bay. In 1936 he merged his company with the Leslie California Company (that owned a salt operation near Redwood City), creating the Leslie Salt Company, which became the largest landowner in the Bay Area. Today Cargill Salt holds much of that land and continues to produce salt in the South Bay. See

An unstaffed visitor center at the park entrance provides displays illustrating the geology; brochures are provided for a self-guided volcanic tour.
Named in honor of Robert Sibley, director and president of the East Bay Regional Park District from 1948 until his death in 1958, and as head of the UC Berkeley Alumni Association one of the people active in the original campaign to create EBRPD.  This was one of the three original parks of EBRPD dedicated in 1936 (originally called Roundtop Regional Park); it was expanded in 1977 by the addition of an old quarry site to the north, which provides a cross-section look at the volcanic rocks.
