“Great Access to Sailing the San Francisco Bay”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2012

There are plenty of wonderful people that live in this marina. I spent about a year living on three different boats here. The staff leaves a lot to be desired. The main lady is referred to as the marina Nazi. The docks are not well maintained. The restrooms vary from poor to nice.

“Salty sea dogs”
4 of 5 bubbles 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 bubbles 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 bubbles Reviewed November 9, 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.
