Fun Summer Activities That the Whole Family Will Love

Each year when the weather warms, our neighbors across San Francisco embrace all that our beautiful area has to offer by way of summer activities. Family-friendly options abound, and our staff at Cypress Lawn loves to explore all that the Bay Area has to offer this time of year with their loved ones. Here are some fun summer activities across our community that we think the whole family will love.


Check out an A’s baseball game.


Indulging in our country’s favorite pastime is one of the best ways to revel in the summer season. This year, there are plenty of games happening at Oakland’s own RingCentral Coliseum so scoring tickets is easier than ever. Bring the whole family out to cheer on the A’s!

Go fishing in the East Bay.


Participating in outdoor activities with loved ones is the best part of summer, and the East Bay is an ideal location for reeling in a prime catch. The East Bay Regional Park District  offers a lot of information on fishing in the area’s best regional lakes. The Outdoor Recreation Department hosts field trips to help teach those who are new to fishing the basics of fishing for trout, bass, and catfish.


Experiment at The Lawrence Hall of Science.


Explore all the fun of scientific discovery at The Lawrence Hall of Science. Bring the whole family out for hands-on activities and interactive apps designed to encourage scientific learning in children of all ages. With an incredible view of the San Francisco Bay Area, this museum is a one-of-a-kind gem that’s worth revisiting every year.


Decorate your block in sidewalk chalk.


When temperatures rise, kids across the Bay Area take to the sidewalks to create masterpieces out of chalk. All you need is colorful chalk and a free square of sidewalk to bring out the artist in you and your children. It’s a fun, low-cost activity that provides hours of entertainment in the fresh air.


Kayak around the Bay.


Cruising around the gorgeous Bay in a kayak is an unforgettable experience every member of your family will love. It’s a perfect summer activity, and City Kayak makes online reservations for kayak rentals easy.


We want all our neighbors to have a fun summer spending time with their families and the ones they love. Contact our caring team with any questions or concerns. We are here for you 24/7.
