Part of wandering around Benicia took us down to this lovely park area, mainly for a stroll and a look around. It was fairly interesting goings on with people out and about, and a few joggers and even a boat or two passing by. It...More

This park is great for walking and riding bikes. The paths are paved and busy after work time. It is a great place to take a walk in the sunshine along the water front.

This is a popular walking/jogging area. Once you get off the paved areas into the hiking trails the views of the bay are very nice. If you are a birder or wildflower fan there plenty of both to be found depending on the season. There...More

If you live nearby, this is worth visiting. You can take a long walk or drive out to the end of the road. Nice spot for fishing or just watching the ships go by in the strait. Restrooms are usually open. The native plant garden...More

This is a nice place to walk along the wetlands. Nice views as one walks on the paths. A good place to ride bikes also. At the end of the road are places for picnics etc.

Don't waste your time going here unless you like to fish. There's no place to sit, no beach and you pay $6 for nothing.

This small recreation area provides a wonderful sense of peace as you walk the easy trail past marsh land filled with many species of birds. At the end of the first trail lies another that travels 4 miles along the water to a point great...More

I'm concerned about the numbers of dogs that owners let roam free without leashes. I have been nipped once and frightened a number of times while hiking the trails. What recourse do I have?
