Hayward Shoreline Interpretive Center

Perched on stilts above a salt marsh, the Hayward Shoreline Interpretive Center is your introduction to the ecology of the San Francisco Bay Estuary. The Interpretive Center features exhibits, programs and activities designed to inspire a sense of appreciation, respect and stewardship for the Bay, its inhabitants and the services they provide. After getting an overview of the park and its features, join a naturalist on one of the many weekend interpretive programs offered.

Operating Hours

The center is open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday through Sunday but you can take a walk anytime from sunrise to sunset.
