Picnic tables, charcoal grills, a running path, and a stunning view of the largest estuary on the west coast -meet the Emeryville Marina! Bonus: cell reception can be spotty, which makes it a perfect place to forget your cares and check in with nature, even amid iconic urban landmarks in the distance.
It also boasts a popular walk on the San Francisco Bay Trail. An easy, flat, 1.5-mile stretch from Point Emery to Emeryville’s Marina Park, with views that encompass the Golden Gate Bridge, the Oakland Port cranes, and the sailboats docked at the City marina.
Not only does the Marina lead with stunning views, it is also taking a lead in environmental sustainability.
Operated by the City of Emeryville, the Emeryville Marina recently made news with a pilot program paid for by Safe Harbor Marinas. To help fight water pollution, this pilot featured the installation of “Seabin,” a floating device that acts like a vacuum and filters out debris and related pollutants.
“We’re proud to introduce Seabin as an innovative, cutting-edge technology that respects and protects the marine environment,” Kate Pearson, Safe Harbor’s West Coast Regional Vice President, reported to local media.
DAY ON THE BAY
Join Public Market and the community in a celebration of our shoreline and harbor. Each March, the City of Emeryville presents “Day on the Bay,” a family-friendly event recognizing the opening day of boating season.
Both the Emery Cove Yacht Harbor and Emeryville Marina open their piers to the public to take a peek at the variety of boats, including the Fish Emeryville fleet of fishing charters, The Coast Guard Auxiliary fleet, and the Alameda County Fire rescue boat.
Sponsored in part by Public Market Emeryville, this year’s Day on the Bay is Saturday, March 24th, 10AM to 2PM. Among the highlights are live music, free rides on the Bay, and a glimpse at the athletes of the “World’s Shortest Triathlon” event. Plus, a number of Food Hall tenants will be serving up their #GoodEats at the event.
Stay tuned for more details soon.
