This is a pretty relaxing convenient to San Francisco if you want to go see some nature but not be too far away from everything else and it’s good for kids and families

It's a place that worth a visit. You can park you car and go for waking through the shore. A good place for meeting friend and prepare a barbecue.

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.
