Park description

A beautifully landscaped shoreline picnic area, a secluded cove, a fishing pier at a historic site a hilltop with excellent panoramic views of the north Bay Area and a model railroad museum (across the street) - 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.

The park is located on Dornan Drive, south through the automobile tunnel from Garrard Boulevard in Point Richmond.

Proceed through the auto tunnel; Garrard becomes Dornan Drive on the south side of the auto tunnel. The park entrance will be on the right less than 1/2 mile south of the tunnel.

  1. If you are there early Little Louie's in Point Richmond (Washington Ave) http://www.littlelouies.com/menu.html is open at 7AM for breakfast and you can get a sandwich to go. Other breakfast in the area: Boilerhouse http://www.boilerhouserestaurant.com/ restaurant at the end of Harbor Way.

  2. Very good recommendations Janice! I've tried Little Louies lots of times. I wish they would bring back the Salmon burgers. Never tried Boiler House, but sure looks & sounds good :)

  3. Hey I see we made the on-line notices!
