  • San Pablo Recreation Area


Registration is closed

Join your SBA friends, well-known and brand new, for a picnic in a nearby but little known Bay Area nature jewel — the San Pablo Recreation Area! We invite you to bring your loved ones to our third annual event SBA picnic — friends and family members are most welcome!

San Pablo Recreation Area is located only 20 minutes from Berkeley and offers exciting outdoor activities including: boating (a variety of boats can be rented there at very reasonable prices, including kayaks & row boats - group boat rides might also be available), volleyball, horseshoes, soccer, frisbee and hiking. Our ideal SBA lakeside picnic site features: a grassy lawn, picnic tables, shade canopy & BBQ grill which you can use, as well as easy access to bathrooms and a great playground!

Please bring a potluck item, as well as drinks for your and your family. Feel free to bring any of the following to share: appetizers, desserts, entrees (especially encouraged!), salads and side dishes.

Of course we especially appreciate healthful, nutritious, and delicious food that's sustainably grown (e.g., local, pesticide-free, organic), prepared, and packaged! If you or any of the people you bring have restricted diets, please bring food they can eat to ensure that they'll have adequate fare — thank you!

Musical instruments, outdoor toys, play equipment, your fun-loving spirit, blankets and folding chairs to sit on, jackets just in case the wind kicks up, your own utensils, plate, cup, and non-disposable napkin if you're able — we'll provide recyclable plates, napkins, cups, and cutlery for those who aren't

If there is interest, we will have a talent show/cabaret at a time when there is critical mass at the event. Fun, fun, fun!

We need several volunteers for prep, set up, helping with the BBQ, planning/leading activities, and clean up.

If you'd like to volunteer, perform in the talent show/cabaret, or have a question about the event, please contact Ann McGinnis.

San Pablo Recreation Area is located off San Pablo Dam Road between Orinda and El Sobrante, at: 7301 San Pablo Dam Road, El Sobrante, about 5 miles off of Highway 80. Take the first left turn off after the entrance to the Kennedy Grove Regional Park. We'll be at the site closest to the reservoir, to the right of the visitor's center as you face the water.

$6.50 per vehicle ($4 after 3 pm or $2 after 4 pm - you can stay until 8 pm). Please pay at the entrance booth or at the visitors center near our picnic area.

PARK DOG POLICY Dogs are welcome at San Pablo Recreation Area in the west side parking lots, picnic areas and paved roads, but are not allowed in any boat or in the reservoir. Please keep dogs on a leash (6 foot maximum); no more than three dogs are allowed per person. The venue literature indicates a $2 per dog day use fee.

The event is FREE and open to non-members, but please RSVP ASAP so that we can get a sense of the number of attendees. Thank you!
