We took a late afternoon stroll on the pathway around this wetland area that is a small part of the greater San Pablo Bay area. Popular with birding groups. The walk is on flat land. Birding lists available near the entrance.

Love to catch a walk with friends at this bird sanctuary with level path and easy access. Such a great escape from town but only minutes away.

Great place to see basking turtles and many different varieties of birds. People walk their dogs, others ride bicycles or just stroll the long paved path. Nice sunset and river viewing. Educational; bring binoculars, camera.
