As the home page of the Richmond Convention and Visitors Bureau exclaims, “Richmond is the perfect place to ‘play in the Bay.’”
For example, the Bay Trail, a planned recreational corridor that will ultimately encircle the San Francisco and San Pablo Bays with a continuous 400-mile network of bicycling and hiking trails, includes much of Richmond’s scenic shoreline. In addition to the East Bay regional parks that are located in Richmond, the City also maintains nearly 50 municipal parks.
Richmond is also rich in public art. A leisurely drive around town will reveal dozens of murals, sculptures, and an ever-growing collection of commemorative works on our waterfront.
With its temperate climate, Richmond enables residents to enjoy just about any outdoor activity. Golf is enjoyed year round at the Richmond Country Club, which boasts a PGA-caliber, 18-hole golf course. The Richmond Yacht Club offers a full calendar of cruises, racing, and sailing classes.
