    Look out for cool kites! This is a great place for people watching, and has amazing views of SF and the Golden Gate Bridge.

    Off leash is well marked (could use a couple more signs). Awesome bay views. Great for kites and Sat/Sun planes/helis/hacks fly near the dog bowl.

    If you are flying RC planes or helis, practice good etiquette and safety. Don't fly over or close to people or animals. Keep the park safe and fun for all.

    Best views of SF Bay facing west and the Golden Gate. Climb the little hill on the western edge and enjoy the view from one of the benches.

    On clear days you can see downtown SF, Alcatraz, the bay bridge, the Golden Gate bridge, Sausalito & Berkeley hills. During certain seasons the west side of the park is home to white spotted owls!

    At the end of Spinnaker Drive is a small circle and parking lot where you can watch the sunset behind the Golden Gate.
