I visited the Albany Bulb a couple of times, this day and 22 March 2009. I believe once a landfill for at least construction materials. You will find some old concrete and rebar in places along the trail. There is also some cool artwork in the NW corner of the bulb, that I didn't stumble across until my second visit there.

Here are the photos from my visits there.

You can see the treed hill of El Cerrito in the background.

I don't think it is called that, but this is a great place to bring your dog and let them chase balls in the surf.

True enough, in at least this one place.

Possibly a little more tame from this angle.

I thought that was particularly well done.

The horse track, looking SE toward the back of the building. This day (5 April) was the Daschund Derby. Every other race was a race run by 10 to 12 Daschunds. Their race "course" was about a 30 yard straightaway. Pretty funny though as some of them just ran all over the place.
