Bedwell Bayfront Park Master Plan Project

A master planning process is underway to address existing maintenance and capital improvement needs and establish a park vision guiding improvements for the next 25 years. The community is invited to attend the upcoming public meetings to provide input on their vision for the park’s future.

Project Background
Bedwell Bayfront Park is a 160 acre regional park, and the City’s only park on the bay. Built on top of a landfill, it is surrounded on three sides by the Don Edwards San Francisco Bay National Wildlife Refuge (click for context map). The park had been envisioned by its founder, former City Manager Michael Bedwell, as a “park for passive recreation including nature walks…picnicking, day hiking and meadow sports, as well as just plain enjoyment of the silence, the fresh breeze and the view.”
