In 1978 Candlestick Point became California’s first urban state park. In addition to hiking, the park is popular for picnicking, fishing, and windsurfing. For a state park, the area is still a little rough around the edges, but Candlestick Point’s bay-front location is full of potential. Anyone who visits can appreciate the pleasantly flat terrain and views of the bay, the East Bay, and San Bruno Mountain.
