About The Park

A beautifully landscaped shoreline picnic area, a secluded cove with swimming beach, a fishing pier at a historic site a hilltop with excellent panoramic views of the north Bay Area and a model railroad museum - all these attractions are part of 307-acre Miller/Knox Regional Shoreline in Richmond.

The park was named in honor of the late State Senator George Miller, Jr., and for John T. Knox, a Point Richmond resident and former State Assemblyman.

Park Activities

The picnic facilities are on a tree-shaded lawn surrounding a saltwater lagoon. Several of the larger picnic sites are reservable for group parties. A mile-long jogging and bicycling trail loops around the lagoon which is home and feeding ground to many waterfowl.

Miller Knox

Keller Beach, a gift to the park from the City of Richmond, is at the north end of Miller/Knox. There, visitors can wade and swim in San Francisco Bay. No lifeguards are on duty. Picnic tables and restrooms are nearby.

Ferry Point is at the south end of Miller/Knox. Anglers may have good luck catching starry flounder, perch, sand dab, striped bass, and other Bay fish from the fishing pier located at this historic ferry terminal.

A hike to the top of the nearby grassy hills is rewarded by spectacular views in all directions (hike description, 68 kb pdf). Mount Tamalpais, the San Francisco skyline, Brooks Island, and East Bay hills are all visible on clear days. The prevailing winds make for excellent kite flying.

Learn about the Ferry Point Loop of the San Francisco Bay Trail encircling Miller/Knox.

Don't miss the Golden State Model Railroad Museum across from the park entrance.
