“An awesome local experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2014

Coyote Point is a great because it has several things to do. It has picnic areas, a couple play areas for kids, especially the large remodeled play area at the recreation area to go down the huge slide and climb all over. A huge field for kite flying. Paths to ride bikes. We are members of the CuriOdyssey, which gives us free access to the county park. On hot days, it is nice to explore along the water.

“A little bit of everything”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 December 2013

Nice place with a bit of everything, very close to San Francisco airport so you could see planes flying low circling to land. There are trails to walk, job or ride a bike or benches to sit and enjoy or a part of the bay to just enjoy the water.

“great for picnics”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2013

This is a fairly large area with a great children's play area, a small animal habitat, a museum that is hands-on explaining tide pools, etc. It has many picnic areas and a pretty view of a boat harbor.
