César Chávez Park is a 90 acres (36 ha) city park of Berkeley, California named after César Chávez. It can be found on the peninsula on the north side of the Berkeley Marina in the San Francisco Bay and is adjacent to Eastshore State Park.

The park's east position in San Francisco Bay provides panoramic views of San Francisco, the Golden Gate Bridge, the Marin Headlands, and the East Bay hills. The park's terrain is characterized by very open grassy hills that have become popular for kite flying. Paved paths run the perimeter and throughout the park where picnic tables and barbecue grills are available to the public.

  • This is a big neighborhood park with some views of the Bay. Nice neighborhood green space but not a tourist attraction.  more »
  • This is an easy pave walk. There a many benches to sit down along the path. You have different view as you walk around this park. This is a walk to soak nature, reflect and enjoy the experience.  more »
  • Really cute hiking area by the water. Be aware there are a bunch of little cute animals that look like squirrels. We stayed away from them and they kept to themselves. Plenty of space for dogs and there was an off leash area. Tom's of cute little bird watching and sunset viewing spots.
  • Went there for a early morning walk before my second day class of wilderness first aid. My experience got hampered by the fog, which robbed me of a chance to see the SF skyline. So I went there again in the evening after my class and the experience was better, albeit with gusty winds. I still managed to get good view of SF in the evening, right before the fog covered it up. Great place to walk around, jog or viewing SF. My advice for sightseeing: best time is in the middle of the day.
