Peaceful except for odd train or plane. Landscape very apocalyptic, desolate, not much green no trees. Very open, plenty of wildlife (birds), good place to walk or ride. Will definitely be back. Don't bring the kids, unless they are okay with just walking, riding and bird watching.

I usually arrive in this area to meet friends for lunch in Alvis and I always enjoy stopping by and watching the birds. Great view of the end of the bay

It was late afternoon and we stopped to check out Alviso Marina County Park. It was a pleasant stroll with the sun almost setting and a gentle breeze blowing. It was the perfect place to photograph wildflowers and watch the birds overhead.

It is a lovely place to visit especially in the evenings when the sun is on the corner almost about to set. Overlooking the bay area mountains is this park which stays open till dusk. Many people come here for walking, jogging and biking. If you are lucky like we were...you can see the train which passes by you. Don't... More

The day that I was there I saw ground squirrels, water pipits, coots, ducks and various little song birds. They also have a picnic... More

Visited three times over a ten day period. I arrived at dawn and parked on street out side the parking lot. Lots do not open until 8 A.M. You can walk through the little gate on the right, and spend dawn with the rails calling. Check on the tide chart...if you go at high tide or as tide is receding... More

Suitable for a leisure walk. You could feel the light breeze along with a marina scenery. Quiet and relaxing.

The Alviso Marina County Park provides plenty of free parking, clean bathroom facilities, and a few picnic tables and benches. The park is a gateway to trails within the Don Edwards San Francisco Bay National Wildlife Refuge. We started our nine mile walk/hike around the salt flats early in the cool morning while the sulfur/salt water smell was still mild.... More

Alviso is on the Bay and is near San Jose. It is worth a trip to explore its history and location. Alviso used to be home to over 1000 people, but sunk into the mud years ago. The original canning factory still stands, which at one point was the third largest cannery in the US. Somewhere under the marshes are... More
