We sail with a group of boats (S.F. Pelican Fleet 1) here a few times a year and love it! Families that have members sailing but others don't sail themselves can go over and enjoy the beach or the park or the State Park area...More

I loved it. The beach was very nice and the water was the perfect temperature. I went deep into the water then swam around for a long time. You have to come here! To get to the bathrooms, you have to walk up the pathway....More

For a picnic or just to get out and look at the magnificent view, this is a must-see in Benicia! Even just driving in is worthwhile!

This park is out of the way and doesn't normally have too many people using it. It's nice for kids as well as a place to go and read your book.

We enjoyed going to this wonderful park right by Carquinez Strait. There are nice views also of Carquinez Bridge. There is picnic tables with water views. There is also a nice children's playground. For those who have their own boat, there is boat launching facilities....More
