    Park Highlights

    Berkeley Marina and Pier is a big area covered by the Bay Area Bay Trail. Though the trail takes you around the areas of the park, it is up to you to search and discover what each part has hidden. The Marina is a small place where you can watch boats enter and leave. The Pier is a great place to go to fish or watch boats or surfers battle the waves.

    Berkeley Marina is a large area where people house their boats. It is also a place where people hang out and launch boats and small crafts (surfboards or rowboats) from.

    The Parks/Marina Office is a great place to stop in and get information about the Park and the Marina. It is also a place where you can gind out how you can get docking privileges.

    There is lots of parking and once out of your car you can hop onto the trail immediately and start your journey.

    Small docks like these are all along the trail. They are available for people who wish to launch surboards, windsurf boards, or small boats from.

    The water of the Bay extends into all the corners of the Marina.

    Small chipmunks hid in the rocks. Can you find one?

    Yachts and houseboats dock in the Berkeley Marina. You can find out how to get docking privileges at the Parks/Marina Office at the Marina.

    Many people enjoy what the pier has to offer. Great fishing, restaurants, and fun for family and friends. Some women sit on a large sundial at the entrance to the pier.

    Some people pose for a picture in front of a statue of a Native American on an animal.

    A slight overcast hides the Bay Bridge.

    Some people fishing catch a little crab.

    The city skylind adds to the spectacular view off the pier.
