Lake

Park
“Directly across the bay over Dumbarton Bridge, you’ll find Coyote Hills Regional Park. This park features over 1000 acres of rolling hills and marshland right on the Bay, making it the perfect spot to snag some amazing photos of the natural beauty this area has to offer. The park has a visitors center with information about the area’s history and natural resources, as well as a butterfly garden (open Wednesday thru Sunday, 10 - 4). There are trail hikes, as well as a boardwalk hike over the marshland. ”
