Bedwell Bayfront Park Master Plan Project

We had a great turnout at our first Open House on Saturday, April 8. We received a lot of valuable input, and will be developing conceptual plan alternatives to bring back to the community at the next Open House meeting on Saturday, June 17.

If you were unable to attend on Saturday, April 8, you can still share your vision for the park by taking the online survey. The survey will close on Sunday, May 7, please refer to the documents below for more information regarding the project

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 (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.” Read more about the project history, including past meetings.

Current Status

 
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.
