East Bay Public Plaza reviews
It's a great place for kids to come and have fun. The little stream is fun and it's a great spot for a break. Beautiful setting.

My kids LOVE going to the stream, it's a treat for them and I always attempt to pretend I'm sitting at the beach. My only critique would be that I wish there was more shade and sitting areas...

There is a little river that's perfect size for little kids to wade in. It's free and clean. It's just outside the children's museum. It's fantastic! There are a few benches to sit on and restrooms are provided when in season. You'll often see a policeman patrolling that area and keeping it safe. You can even wander to outside the children's museum and play with some musical instruments for free. Across the street is the water plant and they also have a free little museum and river to look at (not wade in).
This place is awesome! Perfect for toddlers on a hot day. Feels like being at a real stream, without any of the danger! There’s even bathrooms nearby, and a security guard who walks the perimeter. The way it’s landscaped, you really don’t feel like you’re in the middle of the city. And right next door to an awesome children’s museum if you need something else to do! Wish you could park longer than 3 hrs on the street though. :(
