Beautiful sight

Great place to walk around, have a picnic and watch the planes land. It's great to visit this place all times of the year. The only downside is they're open only until 6.

The place is close to San Mateo and easy to get to from 101. The picnic area is nice. The trail around the perimeter is nicely paved. From the trial, kids can watch the non stop airplane coming into SFO. A short walk to the pier, you can see people boating and fishing at the bay. All around a nice... More

I visited the regional seashore and felt blessed to be here. All I did was walk partially from the Golf Course to the Regional Park. It was an awesome and peaceful time with God and Nature.

A nice park to visit. We happened to be there on a photo shoot because of the interesting backgrounds. If you want to relax and watch the planes land at San Francisco International Airport, this is one of the places to be. Some of the locals were swimming.

This place was the best thing about our 6 day visit to SFO!!! That park was huge and there was a beach right off the park! I am so extremely thankful for this park. My son(8years old) kept asking to go back so we came back 3 times over the course of the 6 days we were there- if that... More

Great place to have a nice walk along the Bay Trail south of Coyote Point. This way you can bring your dog with you . Dogs are not allowed in the recreation area :(
