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

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.

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.

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....
