Ride your bike over the Berkeley Bicycle Overpass and use the free valet parking by Richmond Spokes near Adventure Playground. Or take AC Transit from the Downtown Berkeley BART station. This only runs until 6:30PM, however and doesn't come back into the marina. To leave on AC Transit, walk out over the freeway overpass after the fireworks to University and 5th St.
