Estuary Park
A Measure DD Project

Current Park. In the past, this 7-acre waterfront park was largely hidden from public view by the adjoining Cash and Carry warehouse that was recently demolished.  The park incorporates the Jack London Aquatic Center, a community facility providing youth and adult programs in rowing.  It also includes a popular grassy field, a public boat launching ramp and a group picnic area.

Measure DD plans call for renovation and expansion of the park. Plans include reshaping the shoreline, providing improved access along the water's edge, and redesigning parking to provide for additional landscape areas and a green edge.  The graphic above illustrates the design concepts.

Bay Trail LogoThe Bay Trail runs through the site and will be improved as part of the project.
