With inland temperatures well into the 90s, the Berkeley Pier is the place to find a cool breeze.

Unfortunately the raised observation deck at the entrance to the pier has been given a low maintenance priority by Marina staff, and the stairs have recently been removed because the deck is now considered unsafe.

The Berkeley Pier is an examle of an extremely popular and heavily used "waterfront promenade." It is ironic that while the Eastshore State Park planners struggle to justify similar amenities where they may not be wanted, the most popular existing one is allowed to deteriorate.
