Swimming, Play and More at McNears Beach Park in San Rafael

May 26, 2016

McNears Beach Park is one of those special places that I hold close to my heart. I grew up literally around the corner from it, and spent a lot of time there as a child. It's still one of my favorite places to spend the day in Marin, especially now that I have kids of my own. McNear's Beach is a 55-acre county park located on the shores of San Pablo Bay. It's the a perfect place to go on a warm day to wade in the bay, swim in the pool, picnic, fish, take in spectacular views of the San Francisco Bay Area, and more.

My kids love Hamilton Community Pool especially for the shallow kids' pool with its play structure, water slide, and water sprayers. It's a blast for kids of all ages. There's also a larger more traditional pool for more serious swimming and water play.

swimming kidStill thinking about joining a Marin Swim League swim team for the spring and summer? Northern Marin families should check out the Stingrays swim team at the Rolling Hills Club in Novato.

The coaches promote good sportsmanship and team spirit in a recreational competitive environment with nine other Marin Swim League teams. The Stingrays swim team fosters fun, friendship, and fitness in a family and community focused program. Both my kids have been a part of Stingrays for the past few years, and they've had a blast!
