Kennedy Grove Regional Recreation Area

Kennedy Grove Regional Recreation Area

Kennedy Grove Regional Recreation Area offers a comfortable setting for either small or large group picnics (some by reservation) or informal gatherings of friends and families.

The grove is situated at the base of San Pablo Dam, and its whispering eucalyptus trees offer a fragrant, calm setting for all kinds of activities from company picnics to family reunions. The centrally located turf meadow provides additional play space for picnickers with enough room to toss a Frisbee, pass a football, or set up an informal softball game. (Hardball is not permitted.) Volleyball and horseshoes are popular with all ages, and equipment may be rented for a minimal fee.

Other popular activities include hiking, day camps, bird watching, naturalist-led activities, walking around the lawn asphalt path, special events such as Cross County Meets and Bay Area Storytelling Festival.

Dogs welcome, as long as they stay on a leash. Please be kind and pick up after your dogs.
