When the cousins visit they squeal, "Let's go to the Big Slide Park". Totally worth the price of admission to the park. There's also an enclosed playground for the Under 5 kids. You can stroll along the Bay and the kids can ride their bikes on the paved pathways. Clean bathrooms and room to spread out a blanket for picnics.

Coyote Point is a great because it has several things to do. It has picnic areas, a couple play areas for kids, especially the large remodeled play area at the recreation area to go down the huge slide and climb all over. A huge field for kite flying. Paths to ride bikes. We are members of the CuriOdyssey, which gives... More

Nice place with a bit of everything, very close to San Francisco airport so you could see planes flying low circling to land. There are trails to walk, job or ride a bike or benches to sit and enjoy or a part of the bay to just enjoy the water.

Loads of trails for running or cycling, and great facilities. Plenty of picnic areas, rest areas, and play areas for the kids. Fantastic views.

This is a fairly large area with a great children's play area, a small animal habitat, a museum that is hands-on explaining tide pools, etc. It has many picnic areas and a pretty view of a boat harbor.

Coyote Point Recreation area is so close to major highways, yet it is so easy to feel far away from the busyness of the bay area there. We especially love the gently sloping trails that reveal these breath taking views of the bay from many angles, can even watch the planes land at SF Airport. Exciting to watch windsurfers nearby....

Lots to recommend at Coyote Point. A good sail launch area and beach, small marina, great views of the Bay, easy trail to hike or bike (connects with the inner Bay Trail for miles of riding). Golf course is so-so. Restaurant is reasonably good.

We try to find interesting and healthy places to bring our grandchildren on our babysitting days. The live bee honeycomb has bees traveling through a tube to the honeycomb and then tons of worker bees and drones tending to the comb. There were hands on exhibits including a ball being directed by every type of leveage device imaginable, magnets designed... More

The times I have been here has been quite windy so be sure and take jackets. There are 2 great playground areas and a beach area. You can rent stuff or buy a kite to fly. There are lots of picnic tables and very clean. You can take a hike and get an awesome view of the bay and watch... More
