Great Toddler Swim: Cull Canyon
Looking for a more “natural” looking swim spot but still want the protection for your kiddo of chlorinated water? Check out Cull Canyon in Castro Valley. It is toddler cool down heaven. There is a sandy beach for digging and lounging and lots of shallow water for splashing in. There are picnic areas and grassy lawns for toddling about. The lifeguards were super friendly and attentive. It isn’t free but pretty reasonable: free parking and adults are $3.50. It may be a bit of a drive but it was totally worth it.
