Bedwell Bayfront Park Master Plan Project

We had a great turnout at our second Open House and received a lot of valuable input. Input from the first Open House and the resulting conceptual plan alternatives were shared with the community.

If you were unable to attend on June 17, you can see the graphic materials presented by clicking on the "Open House 2 Documents" to the right of this page. You can still share your ideas for improving the park plan by taking the online survey which will close on August 10, 2017.

The planning team will be compiling the input received and preparing a preferred park plan to be presented to the community on October 25. Please check back for further updates.

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.
