“Salty sea dogs”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

This is a fun place for local color. Go out on the pier to see and chat with people fishing for dinner or bring a kite and walk along the paths. Adventure Park was a childhood fav that my son still asks to visit whenever we are in town. This is a great, free attraction.

“flat walking trails”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

The marina itself is a fun place to gawk at all the sailboats docked there, but it's also adjacent to a park that offers a rare place in the area to have a scenic walk on flat ground. Great place for people with limited mobility. There's a mile long paved path around a peninsula of greenery that affords great views of the East Bay and, on clear days, the Golden Gate Bridge and beyond.

“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.
