The refreshing breeze will energize your senses. The jogging and walking paths are busy and thus safe. The East Bay Parks Department maintains the area and there is always restoration of the wetland area. In the winter months, this is the warmest area for jogging...More

In the interest of full disclosure, my husband and I berth a small boat at the marina, so we get to see it from both land and water, and are able to get close looks at all the birds on the breakwater and the old...More

This park has several sections -- out by the pier there are views of SF, there's a nice walk along the Bay at Caesar Chavez park, and the Adventure Playground along with the nearby beach is a good place for children over 4. It isn't...More

Yes, but...not everywhere. There are walkways all around the marina. You will not be able to go down to look at boats that are on private docks. There will be a locked gate at the top. But if you are staying at the hotel, or... More
