Like most Marin towns, it's a paradise for hikers and bikers. Even the local mall can be a nice place to spend time outdoors, as each Wednesday afternoon the Town Center is transformed into a farmer's market, complete with organic produce and fresh baked goods. Corte Madera Town Park is the gathering spot for locals, with a playground, skate park, walking paths, summer camps for kids, and a fun 4th of July celebration. It serves as the main hub for a host of other sports activities as well.
From the open space and flat lots of the east side and Corte Madera Gardens to the tree-lined, hillside neighborhoods of Chapman Park and Christmas Tree Hill, there's a variety of flavors to explore and much to like about Corte Madera, including the convenience of the nearby Larkspur Ferry Terminal and easy access to highway 101 for a short commute to San Francisco.
