Typical California - clean, well kept, provided for by local govt, great playground on one side for the kiddies and a superb - one of the best - enclosed dog parks anywhere on the other side. Both front the bay with a constant stream of inbound aircraft to SFO International. Great spot to do exactly what is it named.

The park is not going to be lovely in the middle of the winter but I was surprised to find a gem near my hotel.

This entire area both north and south has really nice walking paths. Most are paved, but a few are dirt. Nicely maintained with a wide variety of vegetation along the paths. Was really foggy when I walked the area, but still a nice way to get out and see the bay.

We cam here on New Year's Day with the kids. We probably spent 2-3 hours sitting on benches enjoying the sun while the kids ran around. There is so much for them to do here and entrance was only $6. The playground is awesome! The park is huge. It's cool looking at the plane landing at SFO while sitting at... More

We visited this place at night. It was so beautiful... the lights around the shore gave the city a different look. You can feel so much peace and calm just by looking at the bay. Seagulls and other birds were flying along the shore. People go there to jog or for a walk. It is so beautiful for couples at... More

Brought the kids here today to the beach area and they are having a great time! We first got here around 10:45 and there was no wind just a little breeze. It's been about 45 minutes and the wind has really picked up but other than that it is great. So be sure to have the kids wear layers over... More
