We hit up this park as a morning activity to let our toddler play and to enjoy some sunshine and plane spotting. The playground is huge and well maintained with bathrooms next door. We also took a walk over the lovely stroller friendly paved paths along the water and through the trees. There were many spots we could have set... More

This is a beautiful area on the bay. We watched planes coming into the San Francisco airport as well as walked the afternoon away. There is a great kids museum there also.

The scenic views of the bay from this point is really beautiful. A good place for a late evening walk or even to get kids/ family for picnic!

This park has surprisingly neat features - hills, views, quarries, the bay trail, camping. It's in a little bit of a weird area, the junction of the Bay and the highway, surrounded by fields and industrial parks.

A walkable seashore attraction from San Mateo and Burlingame. Having multiferious outdoor sea coast activities. Very popular among school children and weekender families. Windsurfing, walking trails, camp sites, bike routes - it has so many options.

Great location right on the bay overlooking the airport and the east bay. Nice short hiking trails, but you can also access the bay trail from here. $6 per car to park, but free to walk or bike ride in.

We found this on the map located near our hotel. It was wonderful and if we'd had more time we would have visited more. We spent nearly an hour here with a 6 year old, who had energy to spare. It was perfect after or before sitting around with a lot of adults. There are niice swings, slides, slopes, trees... More
