Beautiful place for an afternoon walk

Great place for a walk and enjoy being by the water. Downsides are cleanliness and a little rundown.

stayed at the hilton double tree, and maria and dock was right across our rooms. Had a great time watching fishermen and families launch their boats and head out into the bay.

A wonderful, peaceful place to see many kinds of birds besides seagulls: herons, pelicans, other waterfowl. You can walk through the paths that have an interesting, gently circular pattern. You can also walk into some low, hilly areas where there are California native plants. Nice...More

The whole area seems run down and unattractive. This seems to me to be a waste of a potentially lovely place.

The refreshing breeze will energize your senses. The jogging and walking paths are busy and thus safe. The East Bay Parks Department maintains the area and there is always restoration of the wetland area. In the winter months, this is the warmest area for jogging...More

Come and sit on the dock of the bay and waste some time. Gorgeous views of San Francisco, Marin County and the Golden Gate Bridge. It can be a bit chilly, so dress.

Staying as we were at the Doubletree Marina we crossed the marina many times and it is surely beautiful with a lot of impressive boats.

Yes, but...not everywhere. There are walkways all around the marina. You will not be able to go down to look at boats that are on private docks. There will be a locked gate at the top. But if you are staying at the hotel, or... More
