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

Lovely trails, relaxing and our little girl lived watching the parade of planes landing as well as the playground and animal center. Great weekend afternoon!

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 :(

Coyote Point is spacious and very natural. It has walking paths and clean bathrooms, and the views are lovely! It overlooks a small harbor and the San Francisco Bay. There are picnic facilities for small and large groups! Take a walk by the bay. The air will do you good!

A nice place to walk around, relax and even do some fun activities! There's a gun range, but it's only open to the public a few days, as well as kitesurfing, and BBQ picnic areas - just bring the charcoal!

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!
