A Measure DD Project
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
Bay Trail runs through the site and will be improved as part
of the project.
