Activities

Rosie the Riveter/World War II Home Front National Historical Park

Explore and honor the efforts and sacrifices of American civilians on the World War II home front. Find out how they lived, worked and got along. Many faces, many stories, many truths weave a complex tapestry of myths and realities from this time of opportunity and loss.

Welcome to Rosie the Riveter/World War II Home Front National Historical Park. The Visitor Education Center is open with educational and interactive exhibits. People of all ages can learn about this important time and place in history and how it impacted our daily lives. This relatively new National Park was established in 2000 and is still under development.


The park staff is currently working with the City of Richmond, Contra Costa County and other park partners to preserve the historic World War II resources in Richmond. Some historic sites are open to the public, while others are only viewable from the outside. Please be sure stop by the Visitor Education Center, first, in order to watch our films, learn about local history and pick up a map that will provide guidance to park sites throughout the city of Richmond, California.

Point Isabel Regional Shoreline

There are beautiful views of the Golden Gate Bridge, Marin County and Brooks Island from this popular 23 acre park located at the west end of Central Avenue in Richmond. There are 20 more acres at North Point Isabel, which is located across the Hoffman Channel. Also, there are more than 2.5 miles of San Francisco Bay Trail in the vicinity of the park. A unique feature at Point Isabel is the special rules that allow dogs to be off-leash, but under the voice control of their owner, throughout the park. Well over one million visitors come to the park each year, most of them with their dogs.

Point Pinole Regional Shoreline

The journey is as scenic as the destination at Point Pinole Regional Shoreline, a 2,315-acre parkland right next to densely populated Pinole, Richmond, and San Pablo. Trails lead through breezy meadows with wildflowers in season, through aromatic eucalyptus woods, or along bluffs and beaches on San Pablo Bay.

There are beautiful views of Mt. Tamalpais, the Marin shoreline, and San Pablo Bay with its sailboat and shipping traffic.

Wildcat Canyon Regional Park

Wildcat Canyon Regional Park encompasses 2,427 acres along the Wildcat Creek watershed and the surrounding hills and ridges. The park extends from the Tilden Nature Area above the Berkeley hills in the south to historic Alvarado Park at the north end in Richmond. It includes a significant portion of the paved Nimitz Way extending from Inspiration point in Tilden Regional Park. Easy access from the busy cities of the East Bay makes Wildcat Canyon a popular place for hikers, mountain bikers, equestrians, and those simply looking for a quiet place to spend an afternoon. Alvarado Park, with its historic stonework, provides picnic areas for large and small groups, a wonderful play area for children, and access to Wildcat Creek, all just steps from the busy streets of Richmond.
