Walk or bike north along the shoreline of this East Bay treasure and view seasonal wetlands and mudflats lined with birds followed by Marina Park, an area with playgrounds, picnics, and a mile long trail out into the bay. Continuing north, Oyster Bay Regional Shoreline includes a steep upward walk that leads to a nice view of the bay below. About a mile above here is Martin Luther King Jr. Regional Shoreline, which houses Arrowhead Marsh – filled with pickleweed and salt grass. Further up San Leandro Bay you will come across the Tidewater Boating Center, where you can rent a boat or kayak. Keep going north and find yourself in Alameda bird watching at the Elsie Roemer Bird Sanctuary.
