Alviso Marina County Park
Alviso Marina County Park offers beautiful views of San Francisco Bay and the amazing wildlife that call it home. Birds of many varieties live in the vast marshes that outline the bay, and are accessible by walking down the multiple boardwalks that lead out into the marsh. Hiking, biking and bird watching are favorite activities in both the park and the refuge, while picnicking and strolling along the manicured pathways can be enjoyed within the park.
A very unique phenomenon is the salt deposits on the shoreline from the old mining industry on the water's edge. Visitors can walk out on the salt flats and peer into the pools of dark reddish-brown water discolored by the salt.
For boating, a launch ramp for motorized and non-motorized boats provides one of the few clear routes in the San Jose area through the salt marshes of Alviso slough out to the open waters of the San Francisco Bay.
