Benicia State Recreation Area covers 720 acres of marsh, grassy hillsides and rocky beaches along the narrowest portion of the Carquinez Strait.

Cyclists, runners, walkers, equestrians, and roller skaters enjoy the park's two miles of road and bike paths. Picnicking, bird watching and fishing are also attractions. The recreation area is 1.5 miles west of the outskirts of Benicia on I-780. The marshland area on Dillon's Point is a particularly favorite place for fishing.

Please note:

• Cars can enter the park through a toll gate. (Parking fee)
• Dogs must be on a leash at all times.
• The park is open from 8 a.m. to sunset daily.
