“Peaceful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

If your looking to take a nice relaxing stroll, a jog, or fly your kite this is the best place for it. Also on the 4th of July they have a huge fair at the marina and they have food and games. Its great for families.

“Beautiful place to walk--for humans and dogs alike!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

The Berkeley Marina is beautiful and very accessible. Parking is easy. There are different areas one can explore. Dogs (on leash) are welcome (many people don't leash their dogs, so be prepared for that). Dog owners should be careful as the spot is patrolled at times and owners of off leash dogs will be ticketed. It's fun to watch the kites that are always being flown. It can be quite chilly and windy there, so be sure to wear layers.

“Wonderful view of the Bay Area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

When you are in town, you must go and see the Berkeley Marina by night. Sparkling lights reflecting on the glistening waters. Just magical. Nice restaurants around the area.

“Scenic and secluded”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

Had a walk around the harbour area and trecked up the pier - loved the pelicans, views of Alctraz, the bridges and the mountains/ A great way to spend an afternoon.

“A great walk, bike or run around at anytime”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

I love the Berkeley Marina. I especially like walking around the marina at Cesar Chavez Park. There is an off leash dog area up on the hillside, and its a fabulous place for the dogs to run around and have fun. The air is so clean and you can have a lovely view of the City, and the yachts that sail around the Bay. Usually we will stop at the Sea Breeze cafe at the entrance to get some seafood stuff, which is a great way to end the walk or bring in the food to have a little picnic by the marina. The Berkeley marina is a wonderful gem.
