Coyote Point has something for everyone: beach, tide pools, marsh, hiking, museum, multiple playgrounds and picnic areas, watersports, golf, harbor and even a gun range. In fact, the gun range is the only thing that interrupts the peacefulness of this place. It's where the cops...More

Surprised to see only 115 reviews on Trip Advisor. It should be in thousands. Nice place to hangout. Inhale the oxygen as much as you can. Nice view of wind surfing and airplanes landing and taking off. A must visit place.

A little "zoo" and a little playground for children, great for spending a whole or part of an afternoon. Parts of the exhibit area are educational for children, and even as an adult, I was able to learn a few new things. In good weather,...More

I actually walked through this area on my way to CuriOdyssey Museum. Excellent location to run, jog or watch the aircraft landing at San Francisco International Airport. There is a $6 vehicle charge to drive into the recreation area.

This is a beautiful rec park with lots of age-appropriate playgrounds, room to run and trails. We had an 18-month old in our group who had an absolute ball. It was very very family oriented. People were very nice and the kids just ran in...More

Happen to be in the area and decided to check it out. First time visitor to the area. In my mind, not worth the $6.00 parking fee to enter the recreation area. On the plus side, variety of parking lots available. Unable to comment on...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
