This is a 2.5 mile beach with sand dunes. The beach hosts Elsie Roemer Bird Sanctuary at the east end of the park which harbors aquatic birds and other salt marsh creatures. Crab Cove at the north end of the park is a marine reserve where all plant and animal life is protected.
This short parkway strip extends along the waterfront just off Marina Village Parkway in Alameda, opposite the mouth of the Lake Merritt Channel. The park is located on the Estuary and may be accessed from the Marina Village Plaza or the Pacific Marina. It has appealing views of the marina, estuary, opposite shore, and downtown Oakland, expansive lawns and pedestrian and bike paths along the water which are part of the Bay Trail. There are restrooms and a drinking fountain.
