Peaceful and easy walking

Free parking and a lovely park with benches. Waled around for 30 minutes, watched the sailboats and just soaked up the sun. Great end to a workday!

This is the perfect place to come and relax. There is a delicious restaurant called Skates On The Bay. You can bring your pet and go for a long easy walk/ride a bike. You get a great view of the bay and people sailing, wind surfing and kayaking. Just remember to bring a sweater. It is windy. There is also... More

Got together with friends to go geocaching at the Berkeley Marina. Nice walking paths of all types. Awesome views. Chances to see wildlife (birds and an overly friendly rodent). Dogs were walking their humans. People were flying kites. Walked to the end of the busy pier. Very peaceful and relaxing. The views like this is one of the very few... More

Being indoors can get so regular, so I try to not stay home and watch Netflix. The beauty of travel is I sometimes stumble onto places that defy the imagination and this place is one of many places that takes my breath away.

One of my favorite little hidden east bay gems to go to. Seriously this place is awesome for a day to chill and rock around at. Want to have a day to just grab a picnic with that someone special without it being overly hot during the summer? Do you just like to watch the boats going by? Well this... More

I always take visitors and friends here for the fantastic view! Walk, bike, bus or drive down University Avenue in Berkeley into the Marina area, west of the freeway and past Frontage Road.Turn right where the road splits and go past the Doubletree Hotel which is on your left. Follow the road around to the left and go to the... More

What a great way to spend an afternoon, especially if it's a sunny day and it's free. People were walking, fishing, running, dancing, painting, taking pictures, and yes, texting. Secret... go in the afternoon and when the tied is up.

I came to visit my cousins, but the teacher in me can't stop. I took the preteens to the marina to take pictures of them at sunset. They were describing the sunset to me as I was shooting them, but using simple words like "cool," "pretty," and "nice." I told them those all described it, but I wanted them to... More

This area has several features. First off is Cesar Chavez Park: location of the annual Berkeley Kite Festival every summer, lots of space to fly kites; a small dog park area designated for off-leash; neat sun dial at the top of the hill; and a flat, paved trail that circumnavigates the park providing views of Berkeley, Albany, El Cerrito, Richmond...
