César Chávez Park is 90 acres of gently rolling hills in Berkeley Marina. Its users enjoy a variety of San Francisco Bay events and beautiful views. The park was built from landfill between 1960 and 1983, operated by the City of Berkeley's Department of Parks and Waterfront.
If visitors want to get there, they can take exit Highway 80 to University Avenue and head west. To all visitors to the park: expect to see free running dogs in this area, under voice control. If you're unhappy with the involvement of leash gods, you might suggest using a different area of the park.

This park is good and hilly but right on the ocean. It makes an amazing sunset. If people visit the park, there must have been 20 dogs but if you take the edges of the outer park. It's like people are the only one in the area. There is a tiny "woodland" area through which dogs liked to race. But this is mostly grassy field, which takes about an hour to slow walk. The very outer ring (sidewalk) dogs must be on leashes, and the ocean faces also some good benches. The dogs also seem to be pretty friendly and the owners know their dog habits well (you'll see some owners wanting to be left alone because their dog may be aggressive). It’s definitely worth seeing.
