Martin Luther King, Jr. Regional Preserve, Arrowhead Marsh 
1 Swan Way, Oakland

Yes for wheelchairs and walkers

A ramped observation deck looks out over the 50 acre salt marsh. There are restrooms. The easy walk along this tidal Arrowhead Marsh (great for wintering and migrating water birds at this time of year) can be extended for longer, faster walkers - paved and level. While it is 3.7 miles out and back, we will accommodate a much shorter walk. Easy to turn around at any point, so great for all skill levels.  The tide will be coming up, so we may see birds. Walkers can go at their own pace and distance. Walk leaders will accompany, as needed.

While we need it! Rain cancels!

Where to meet
We will meet at the second parking lot on the left on the access road which is reached at 1 Swan Road, Oakland.
