Many parks dot the landscape of Richmond. The City maintains 46 of these neighborhood parks, enjoyed by residents year-round.
Richmond is also graced by several larger regional parks, operated by the East Bay Regional Park District. They include Point Pinole, Point Isabel, Miller Knox Regional Shoreline, and Brooks Island parks.
Another feature of our natural landscape is the Bay Trail. Following the shoreline, you can walk or bike along the well-paved trail while taking in stunning vistas of the bay.
Our city is proud to be the home of the “Rosie the Riveter WWII Home Front National Historical Park, the newest in the National Park System.
This urban park is comprised of numerous sites commemorating the accomplishments of tens of thousands of men and women who migrated here in the early 1940′s. Many of these sites are now undergoing development as historical exhibits. Although the restoration work is just beginning, they are rich and exciting places to visit.
