An ideal destination for kids


Cavallo Point is an ideal destination for kids and families to enjoy the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond. The grassy expanse of our parade ground lawn is perfect for running around, playing ball, flying kites or having a family picnic – all while enjoying stunning views of San Francisco. Next door, sharing our secluded cove, is the popular Bay Area Discovery Museum, recognized as one of the best children's museums in America.

Here nature thrives. Our back yard is 75,000 acres of the Golden Gate National Park with built-in kid fun like hiking and beachcombing. But San Francisco and her attractions are just across the bridge. There, other family-friendly events, cultural experiences, museums, sights and adventures are abundant. Kids love Cavallo Point, and we welcome them warmly!
