Take to the water by booking a private small-boat expedition on the Bay with the Square’s newest permanent resident; Bay Voyager, or take a sailing lesson with J World Performance Sailing. Families can also partake in a canoe or kayak tour of Oakland estuary with rentals provided by California Canoe & Kayak
There are plenty of great places to stop and enjoy brunch along the waterfront such as the Peruvian restaurant Bocanova, Il Pescatore Ristorante , Miss Pearl's Restaurant & Lounge and my favorite; Miette to satisfy mom’s sweet tooth, or take stroll around their Farmers market sampling a wide selection of fresh produce.

The kids can let off some steam running around the new outdoor play area located in the Pavilion Plaza with state-of-the-art climbing structures. The expanded green spaces and new outdoor seating area are perfect for a family picnic with the goodies you found at the market. It is the ideal way to spend some family time in the sunshine!
