Hauke Park is a large park that is split into two sections accessible by a foot bridge. The main section is located at the corner of Hamilton Drive and Roque Moraes Dr. This part contains the kids play area, picnic benches, bathrooms, a baseball diamond and possible soccer field. Walking south from the children's play area across the grass fields leads you to a foot bridge that crosses the Pickleweed Inlet. On the other side of the foot bridge is another grass field that contains the soccer fields and parallels the Mill Valley-Sausalito Path. This grass field is easily accessible from Sycamore Avenue.
The kids play area is nice and the apparatuses are spread out. My kids really liked the tire swing and the teeter-totter. I liked the benches that surround the rim of the play area. This makes supervision easy. The ground covering is tanbark and there is a sand play area. The parking area is right next to the play area as well.
The day we visited was a clear day, but not too hot. However, there is very little shade near the play area, so I can see the play structures and swings becoming hot to the touch and kids getting thirsty. It's probably best to bring water.
