Design Presentation

Background and Purpose

For 50 years, Bayside Park has offered public access to stunning bayfront views and open space. Uses of this neighborhood park include:

  • Enjoying view of the Bay
  • Shady seating on benches and lawns
  • Walking through the park with distance from road noise
  • Picnicking
  • Rest stop for cyclists
  • Fishing

Asphalt degradation has made the park inaccessible to Park visitors. This project seeks to rectify the disrepair and deterioration of the existing facility to adhere to accessibility laws and regulations, to ensure that all Marin residents may enjoy this community resource.

This project is being funded by the Marin County Disability Access Program. The Department of Public Works is leading this project with the support of Marin County Parks.
