“Stroll, Bike, or Walk Your Dog”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2014

A quiet and scenic spot for very safe stroll or bike ride on a wide paved path. The area is dog friendly and plastic bags are available on sign posts if you run out of your own. There is a tiny community garden just beyond building three of the Double Tree Inn and sharp eyes will both spot wild life and found art sculptures. This is a safe area for a woman or elderly person who is seeking a solo break from the city noise.

“Beautiful views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 April 2014

We visited here on Sunday April 13th. We walked all over the marina and enjoyed the many flowers, critters, boats and views of the ocean and places around it. It was a very nice day not too cold or too hot. We were able to watch the wind surfers and boats on the ocean. We even walked the longest pier which use to be 2 miles long.

“Great place to bike”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 April 2014

I love the Marina. I usually start a 16 mile bike ride here. There are great places to walk dogs, kites are often in the air. It's a safe place to park and start on a bike ride along the bay in either direction. It is often windy so dress appropriately for whatever your exercise of choice.

“Lovely place to take a walk.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 March 2014

Easy location to park, great views, and good for a variety of ages, fitness and ability levels. This is a well-known secret place, in the East Bay. The breeze is nice too!

“Totally transformed garbage dump”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 March 2014

Years ago the northern end of the Berkeley Marina area was the city garbage dump. It's totally transformed and there's a paved, wheelchair accessible circular path, probably about 3/4 in all, with wonderful views of the bay and the hills. Another fine walk out the long pier. Just be sure you have a jacket, pretty much all year round.
