There are interesting placards along the way that tell of the 100 years of water rising and falling that have claimed Alviso. A very enjoyable walk along the salt ponds is available. Nice views and a relaxing walk. Yes, you can still hear a distant...More

It was late afternoon and we stopped to check out Alviso Marina County Park. It was a pleasant stroll with the sun almost setting and a gentle breeze blowing. It was the perfect place to photograph wildflowers and watch the birds overhead.
