Keller Beach

A multitude of people wading and swimming.

Kellar Beach is a public beach on the San Francisco Bay in Richmond, California.

Overview

The beach is located in the Point Richmond District at Miller/Knox Regional Park in southwestern Richmond. It is accessible by car and by a 66-foot (20 m) walk from an AC Transit line 72M bus stop.[1][2] The beach's amenities include bathrooms, parking, picnic tables, and barbecue pits. There is no lifeguard on duty. The site is located at the corners of Dornan Drive and Western Drive[1][2] on land and the beach is located on a small cove of the San Francisco Bay. In February 2010, a mass invasion of herring to the bay caused a convergence of ducks, gulls, seals and cormorants that hasn't been seen in over three decades at the beach. With a short walk to the south end there are some great fishing spots, to include a pier.[3]
