There are so many features to explore at Codornices Park in Berkeley that my experience of it has changed completely as my kids have grown older. We find new parts to enjoy with every visit.
Children will enjoy exploring Crab Cove beach in Alameda, but start with the visitor center to get more out of your trip!
Tilden Park’s Little Farm is fantastic, free, and open year-round. Get up-close-and-personal with cows, piglets, chickens, goats, bunnies, and more.
The Tilden Park steam trains in the Berkeley hills are one of the East Bay’s best kept secrets. Kinda. Wonderful fun for toddlers and grandparents.
This lovely East Bay spot for stroller walks and picnics has a wonderful new playground.
The Jelly Belly jellybean company in the land offers free tours and will send you home with samples and fun facts to spare. Win win.
Surrounded by high ceilings and lovely murals, the Richmond Plunge indoor swimming pool is epic. Chilly water but nice, clean locker rooms.
