This is a great place to take small children, they can't get lost on the long boardwalk out to the edge of the marsh. There are several other longer walks in the preserve. the views are amazing and it was fun to see the little planes come and go from the nearby airport. I think nature lovers, people on a date, runners, and small children would like this place in particular.

Never too crowded, some seasons you will see nesting egrets and blue herons. Once we saw a beautiful quail. Always peaceful and full of dog walkers and people getting exercise. The duck pond has been there for decades and is great for kids.

Want to take a vigorous walk? Drive to the 101 side of the Embarcadero. After the airport, the road splits into a T. Take a left for the duck pond, the small nature center, and a raised walkway to the bay. Take a right for the parking near the former recycling center, and a much larger network of trails going to Mountain View. Either way, wear good walking shoes and enjoy the oxygen. Do plan your walk for daylight hours, as it closes at sunset.

It is a brilliant centre. I took my kids often when they were little. They went with school when they were older. I loved the walks and looking for seabirds. Great staff too.
