Parks and Open Spaces

The waterfront offers a variety of open public spaces that can be enjoyed year-round. Parks, plaza, and green spaces abound along the Embarcadero waterfront promenade where visitors can enjoy outdoor activities like biking, skateboarding, jogging, or leisurely walks with stunning views of the Bay as a backdrop. 

Running through the Port are two segments of the San Francisco Bay Trail, a 500-mile shoreline trail that circles San Francisco Bay. The Embarcadero Promenade wraps the northern waterfront from the Fisherman’s Wharf to the Giants ballpark. The Blue Greenway traverses the southern waterfront from China Basin to Heron’s Head Park, extending to South San Francisco. The Bay Trail also links with the SF Bay Area Water Trail for water recreation.
