The Berkeley Marina is an urban retreat, boasting over 100 acres of park space, 7 miles of trails, picnic areas, a 17-acre off-leash dog area, bird-watching, educational programming at the Shorebird Park Nature Center, the nationally celebrated Adventure Playground, unparalleled panoramic views, and amenities for boaters and non-boaters alike.

Southern Waterfront Parking Regulations - The City of Berkeley is making changes to parking regulations at the Waterfront.  Signage at the entrances to parking lots and throughout each parking lot will clearly indicate the applicable parking regulations.

Capital Projects - Big Things are Happening at the Berkeley Waterfront:  -

Transformative and impactful projects are in progress at the Berkeley Waterfront. The University Avenue realignment and reconfiguration, a part of the Marina Streets Paving work, will improve the pavement condition and reconfigure lanes for the safety of pedestrians, bicyclists, and motorists. Important steps are underway that will allow the Berkeley Pier to be reopened to the public. This includes the planning studies, design, environmental work, regulatory clearances necessary to reach a shovel‐ready Berkeley Pier. A draft structural study of Berkeley Pier renovation alternatives has been completed, and an MOU with WETA to coordinate scope and secure funding for additional planning work was recently approved by the City Council.

Successfully completing projects is an important part of what we do. A new public restroom, new windsurfing area, and new landscaped parking lot were completed at the South Cove Sailing Basin in 2018. The San Francisco Bay Trail now runs to the South Sailing Basin. Construction to extend the Bay Trail to Adventure Playground is slated for completion in Summer, 2020. To learn more about these projects and others coming down the pike, view our Measure T1 Infrastructure Bond Interactive Story Map (T1 Projects Only), and our Capital Projects page.
