McNear’s Beach is part of a 55-acre County park, located in a sheltered cove alongside San Pablo Bay.  It's the perfect place to go on a warm day to wade in the bay, swim in the pool, picnic, fish, take in spectacular views of the San Francisco Bay Area, and more.

You can wade and splash in the shallow and gentle San Pablo Bay waters, but the biggest attraction is the swimming pool, which gets pretty busy on a hot day. Plus, there is a toddler pool, too. The McNear's Beach pool opens to the public Memorial Day weekend and stays open through Labor Day.
