Description

San Pablo Park is a good park. However, it could be a great park. I've visited 18 Berkeley parks so far and this one, more than any other one, demonstrated the disparity between the haves and the have nots. Even within the same city.

I could be wrong and maybe the play area was scheduled for a much needed sweep and a good weeding later on in the week that I visited. Or maybe it has been like this for months. I just know that Berkeley Recreation Dept. can do better.

San Pablo Park is a much used park. It has six lighted tennis courts, three basketball courts, numerous picnic areas, a soccer field, a recreation center, two ball fields, and two separate play areas. With all these possible activities, there's always someone using the park.

The big kid play area has two structures which are older and well worn. There's swinging bridges, a spinner, slides, monkey bars, swings, and some sort of finger skateboard center.

The tot play area is newer with a train, a house, swings, rockers, and some wheelchair accessibility. It's just very sandy on the walkways. I had to warn my kids many times not to run on the cement for fear of a bad skinned knee.
