Information formerly on the Youth Center Parks & Playgrounds page


Amber Swartz park was dedicated to Amber Swartz.


Bayfront Park is located at the end of Tennent Ave in Downtown Pinole. Situated on the edge of the bay, Bayfront Park is a perfect place to walk your dog and watch the sunset. There are several paved trails around the edge of the park and along the waters edge. There are several picnic areas with BBQ pits available.


Fernandez Park is Pinole's favorite park. The park is host to birthday parties year round as well as several City Events such as the Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony and the Annual Car Show.
The park has two play structures, several picnic areas, running water, restrooms and a baseball field. The park is in the heart of Downtown Pinole, making it easily accesible. There is always plenty of parking to be found.


Pinole Shores is a great place for train enthusiasts. This is one of the only places where one can clearly view two trains passing each other. It has miles of trails to walk and is close to Downtown Pinole.


Pinole Valley Park is a popular park on weekends. Birthday parties as well as soccer or baseball games may be going on at the same time. This park is nestled deep in the Pinole Valley. During the week the park is quiet and peaceful and is a perfect place to walk the dog or take small children to play on the play structure. The park has restrooms as well as running water.
