Treasure Island/ Yerba Buena Island

The tiny island between San Francisco and the East Bay, Treasure Island is home to Treasure Island Yacht Club, Treasure Island Sailing Center, Golden Gate Rugby, the San Francisco Boys and Girls Club, Kidango Child Development Center, and the California Netball Association.

The Great Lawn is a terrific place for kids to fly kites - with breathtaking views of the city.

Clipper Cove Beach is a secluded beach located off of the Causeway. Parents can pack a picnic beach and hang out for an easy afternoon with the kids.

Tennis Courts are located on California Avenue and are open to the public.

A pedestrian path extends from the main street lining the shore and begins at 9th street, where there's also a small playground. You can walk or bike this short path - the asphalt path is too rough for skates or scooters.

Treasure Island is owned by the San Francisco Recreation and Park Department.
