Guide to San Francisco Bay Area Creeks

Lion Creek Watershed Map

Originally, the large slough, running through the salt marsh on the east side of San Leandro Bay and the major tributary creek were named East Creek. The marsh has now been filled for the construction of the Coliseum and the industrial areas to the north. The various creeks that flowed into the East Creek slough have been combined into two flood-control channels. On the north, Peralta, Courtland, and Seminary Creeks are combined into a channel bearing the name East Creek Slough. On the south, Lion and Arroyo Viejo Creeks flow into a channel called Damon Slough. The upland portion of the creek that had been called East Creek now is called Lion Creek and empties into Damon Slough (not East Creek Slough).
