Nature Kids Solano: Eckley Pier, Crockett

Eckley Pier, Crockett

Wednesday, October 5, 2016

Website: Eckley Pier

Fees: No parking fees.


Hours: Open between 5:00am and 10:00pm, unless otherwise posted or permitted.

To Reach The Park - The park exists in two sections that are not contiguous and are separated by private property. Parking is available at two locations. The Bull Valley Staging Area offers access to Eckley Pier and the western portion of the park, accessible from Carquinez Scenic Drive. From Highway 4 west of Martinez, exit at Cummings Skyway. Turn right on Crockett Boulevard, right again on Pomona Street in Crockett. Pomona Street becomes Carquinez Scenic Drive. Proceed to the staging area, on the left. Driving another 1.5 miles will bring you to another small staging area, also on the left, and another .65 miles will bring you to the Port Costa Staging Area. From I-80 in Crockett, exit onto San Pablo Avenue or Pomona Street, depending on your direction of travel (San Pablo Avenue become Pomona Street east of I-80). Go east on Pomona into Crockett and follow directions above.

As I write this post, it reminds me how much fun the kids had. We explored the area, played on the lawn area (next time we will bring kites), did art projects, walked the pier and waterfront area--the highlight was watching the trains go by.

The kids loved the roar of the trains!

Some of us took a short hike up the hill.  At times it was a little steep, but was nice to stretch our legs and lungs--the views from the top are fabulous.

I will get another meet-up scheduled again, and very soon.
