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.

  • Went here a handful of times, and always found it to be peaceful, with families chasing kites or people walking fogs. Everyone is respectful of each other.

  • This is a big neighborhood park with some views of the Bay. Nice neighborhood green space but not a tourist attraction.

  • Nice view of the shoreline. Plenty of free parking. Enjoy a ride with bicycle or walk. Nice place for bbq as well. Also there is truck for kite. You can buy and enjoy the kite flying. Cons: No public restrooms available. Mobile toilet are not good at all.
  • Awesome route for peaceful, relaxing jogs with good views of the docks and the water. The park features a flat, paved trail that's ideal for new runners or those looking for a mellow run (1.5 miles). Relatively clean! It's always nice when you don't have to keep an extra eye out for animal feces. *Insider tip: Go during the early morning, and you can catch a beautiful view of the sunrise during golden hour ;) 🌅
