This park keeps getting better over the years. Yearly ago this was a pretty drab park that had just views. Now it has so much more to offer from sailing, fishing, kite flying, kayaking, biking, running. All in all a favorite urban park that is up congested.

Just cruising around Berkeley came across great park. Views of Bay and East Bay Hills. Friendly locals living rough outside.

Running / hiking trails with amazing views of the Bay and bridges. Dogs allowed on leash on paved trails. There is an off-leash (!) dog play area in the center of the park.

We walked, with dogs, the 1 1/2 mile "Perimeter Walking Trail" on a recent visit to this 90 acre park. This very nice trail is paved and wheelchair accessible. There are picnic tables and benches to relax on along the way. Great views as you go around, including one of the Golden Gate Bridge. There is a huge hill, and... More

Wonderful way to enjoy the beauty of the bay with a morning run! The indigenous birds and terrain keep it real.

My family loves going here for a variety of activities--Scenic Views, Jogging, Kite Flying, the Dog Park, and Walking on the Old Pier. Very nice for a picnic. There are tables and grills. Several Restaurants are around the Park area. Usually a bit windy. Plenty of Parking available.

A walk around it will provide you with great views of the city and the ocean. You can also have a nice picnic or fly a kite or any other activities that can take place in a park. It is a nice place to be for a few hours.

Take an hour out of your busy day and stroll the perimeter of Cesar Chavez park. The paved path encircles the park (@1.5 miles, start to finish) and will take you past kite flyers, dog walkers, birders, joggers, picnickers, kiteboarders on the bay, and just folks out for a beautiful stroll. Be prepared for wind, and bring your own water.... More

I jog around this park all the time. The wide path is smooth and everyone shares the space. The air couldn't be fresher and there are benches for resting and enjoying the views. An excellent place for those who need a flat surface for walking.
