More outdoor spaces to explore in the East Bay! Because eight wasn’t enough.
Keller Beach Park, Richmond / A small beach that’s worth the visit. If you’re like me, you’ll enjoy watching the resident squirrels find and munch on human snacks.
San Pablo Park, Berkeley / There’s currently construction and upgrades happening at the park, but there’s a huge lawn area – perfect for setting up a socially distanced picnic and enjoying the sunshine.
Willard Park, Berkeley / Aww, I used to live near Willard Park. I even had a crafty birthday party here one year. There’s a playground and lots of grassy areas. I’m particularly fond of their redwood trees. Strolling the neighborhood is lovely, too, because there are so many things blooming year-round.
Point Pinole Regional Park Dotson Family Marsh, Richmond / The scenery is a bit dry, but I loved it here. An hour before sunset there wasn’t much of a crowd, and the trail is wide enough to stay a good distance away from folks going the opposite direction. There’s a small parking lot next to the trail entrance; FYI the lot closes just before sunset.
Miller Knox Regional Shoreline, Richmond / Lots of space for walking and biking, and lovely silhouette views of the City. You can walk to Keller Beach from here, too.
Morcom Rose Garden, Oakland / Well this was a fun find! I had no idea there was a rose garden in Oakland. On this visit (in November) there were a number of roses in bloom, and we met some resident kittens. There are lots of benches and a few water features to enjoy, too.
So fun to adventure around town. There are still so many places to visit. Have you discovered any new sites in your neck of the woods? Share below!
