  • Both of our visits to Steveston included a walk out to the point. Plenty of bird life, passing shipping traffic and other strollers. Lots of opportunities fro great photos, as well.  more »

  • Great park but very polluted. More people ought to call our the water situation. It's medically unsafe to be in with a permanent Heath Advisory Warning at the beaches. A lot of people have their kids playing in the water, where just upstream boats are dumping sewage, gas, oil, and fish guts into the river. I often see oil and gas slicks on the beaches. It's terrible. Something should be done to make the beach safe for families -- this issue shouldn't exist at one of Richmond's only beach destinations.
  • Such a beautiful sight! We came here as a spontaneous trip to kill time before the Richmond Night Market and this was one of the best ideas we made on this trip. Parking can be a little iffy on a beautiful sunny day, but with determination you should be able to stalk a family and take over their parking spot. :) The first thing I saw was a bunch of kites being flown over the grass area. It was amazing to see many people, young and old, having a blast flying their kite on a semi windy day. There's a nice view of the water too - that the park doesn't recommend swimming in - BUT it's a great view to take wedding photos in front of! I took a stroll on their trail and it was a flat giant circle, so I recommend walking on it to get a whole view of what the park looks like. Mainly it's just flat land with a bunch of grass :)
  • Large beautiful open area. Nice to watch the boats come in. Not much shady covered areas. Clean public bathrooms. Yummy Pajos fish and chips.
  • 1st time back here in decades. It was quite populated and fairly calm except for the insano drivers in the Mercedes GLK and Beamer. Crosswalks are for pedestrians! Get a big flashing X walk sign and I would give 5 stars.
  • Nice quiet place. Someone told me that it was an indian burial ground before
