This was a great place for the whole family. The kids loved the playground and the beach. There is free parking out side the park, if you don't mind an 8 minute walk. Bathroom where decent.

I have had about 4 picnics with several groups at this park. If you reserve ahead of your visit you always get reserved tables with no problems. Lots of great views ,hiking and biking. This is a wonderful park.

good place for walking under trees in the park and good place for swimming. Of course the water is a little bit dirty, but in hot weather it doesn't mutter.

This is a great place to visit Saturday morning with the kids. They can play soccer, play on the playground or walk on a beach. All this while airplanes are landing practically every minute (you can smell the fuel the moment you arrive).

You can bring a bag lunch and just find a place to sit and chill. Very peaceful. Watch the world go by. It's a peaceful place and we all need a bit of peaceful right?

Wow! I never know this treasure existed before last week. I was heading for Poplar Creek Golf Course but took a wrong turn, as I was unfamiliar with the area. I found myself on a road that followed the San Francisco South Bay curving around...More

We love coming for walks at Coyote Point. It is often rather breezy but the view of the bay is beautiful and it is so relaxing to see all the people walking their dogs and flying kites. It's awesome to see the birds in their...More

I haven't seen them there, or anywhere in the bay much at all, come to think of it. I'm not sure what maritime rules are with those kinds of craft around shipping channels and "boat" traffic. There are kite surfers at... More

There are several paved walkways up and down the quite steep inclines and thus I would say yes to your question, with the addition that it would be my suggestion not to try it by yourself. Having someone with you would be my... More
