For a picnic or just to get out and look at the magnificent view, this is a must-see in Benicia! Even just driving in is worthwhile!

This park is out of the way and doesn't normally have too many people using it. It's nice for kids as well as a place to go and read your book.

We enjoyed going to this wonderful park right by Carquinez Strait. There are nice views also of Carquinez Bridge. There is picnic tables with water views. There is also a nice children's playground. For those who have their own boat, there is boat launching facilities....More
