Crown Memorial State Beach is a state park in the city of Alameda, CA on the shores of the San Francisco Bay. It is operated by the East Bay Regional Parks District.

The park's Crab Cove Visitor Center features exhibits about the marine life environment of San Francisco Bay, the history of Alameda, and the importance of the Bay. There is an 800-gallon aquarium system with interactive stations for viewing sea creatures up close. Naturalists offers programs for schools and other groups, and weekend nature programs and lectures.

The visitor center's current exhibits opened in 2004. Until the late 1930s, the area was part of a resort community that featured bathing spas and an amusement park. During World War II, the site was the used as a training base for Merchant Marine commanders. The current visitor center building was used as the base infirmary.[1]
