Address: 3239 Powell St, Emeryville, CA Parking: Public parking lot D at address above; free parking along Powell St. as well, but it's a longer walk down. Hours: 7 AM to 10 PM (public parking hours) Type: Easy walk Regulations: Dogs allowed on-leash Best time to visit: Anytime so long as it's not a very hot day. This park tends to stay cooler than surrounding areas because it's right next to the water, but it can still get hot under your dog's paws.
Description: The Emeryville Marina is a picturesque haven offering stunning panoramic views of the SF Bay and bridges. I often enjoy a leisurely walk here on a warm day because it tends to stay cooler and you can enjoy a nice breeze. Marina Park Pathway is a giant loop that takes you down Powell St. along the Bay and loops back along the boat docks. If you start your walk at parking lot D and walk down to the tip and back, this walk is a little over a 1 mile long and offers all the beautiful views of SF. There are a few trees and several benches where you can sit and enjoy the views. To extend your walk, you can walk all the way up Powell St. until it hits W. Frontage Road by the freeway.
