Martin Luther King, Jr. Regional Preserve, Arrowhead Marsh 
1 Swan Way, Oakland
This is the entrance address - proceed through the gateway and park at last parking area where the viewing structure is located along with restrooms! 

Yes for wheelchairs and walkers

A ramped observation deck looks out over the 50 acre salt marsh on this walk that was cancelled due to rain in November. There are restrooms available. 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.  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 last parking lot on the left on the access road which is reached at 1 Swan Road, Oakland. You should park where you see the viewing structure!
