“Great view of SF Bay”
Reviewed November 15, 2012

Wonderful trails that hike either around the marsh, where there are plenty of birds and other animals to look for (including Marsh Mice and Muskrats), or over the top of the hills to get to the beautiful views of SF Bay. The Bay side can be quite breezy, but it's a great view on a clear day!

“Family picnic area”
Reviewed November 8, 2012

This is a great place to have a picnic or barbecue. There is a lot of space and many areas with picnic benches and bbq's. We had a cinco de mayo party here with a bunch of friends. We had a pinata (a lot of trees) and there was a big open field for us to fly kites and play frisbee, etc. It is right by the bay so it can get chilly and windy but a great place to escape the heat in the summer. There is a large park that looks awsome for kids to play!

“Great place to paddle board, bike, picnic, or walk”
Reviewed October 31, 2012

Almost never crowded. Good people watching. You can bike along the bay trail from here. Also you can spend hours looking at the windsurfers and kiteboarders.

“Good childrents museum and zoo”
Reviewed October 31, 2012

The museum and zoo are large enough that you will probably not be able to do it all in one day., They also have summer camps at the museum which seems to be great the kids are always laughing and having a great time.

“A beautiful recreation area!”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

This place is definitely worth a visit. If you have young children, they will LOVE the playground. It's one of the best around. There's golf courses, bike paths, a fabulous science museum and places to bbq/picnic. We also like to walk along the water and watch the planes come in and see the kite and wind surfers.

I can't recommend this place enough.
