Alviso Marina - Parking lot near the restrooms


No parking fee, but limited parking inside the lot. Overflow parking available on Hope Street. The Alviso Slough Trail is flat, and creates an approximately 2.6 mile loop around the wildlife refuge. Dogs are not permitted on the trail. Bicyclists are allowed on the trail but need to walk their bicycles on any boardwalks. The trail is excellent for viewing wildlife and is subject to extreme weather. No swimming or fishing from the shoreline is permitted. Alviso Marina’s launch ramp is utilized by non-power vessels like kayaks and power vessels. Fishing is permitted from a vessel. Seasonally, hunting is permitted in designated ponds. The parking lot closes at sunset. Hunters and fishermen can purchase an annual after-hours key card by contacting Park Reservations at 408-355-2201. It is important to always keep track of the tide levels when launching at Alviso Marina, tide charts are available on-site and online. The park is not a good location to walk your dog due to being restricted to only the parking lot and the picnic sites.
