Paradise Master Plan

A new vision for Paradise Beach Park, in collaboration with the community.

Public participation played a critical role in shaping the Master Plan. The community outreach effort carried out by the design team and the County staff focused on multiple goals:

  • Raise interest in the park within the local community and increase awareness of its assets.
  • Discuss stakeholder priorities for the park.
  • Develop a network of contacts and connections between the County and other organizations to generate future cooperation on educational and scientific programs for the park.

A survey was distributed to local organizations and institutions with specific questions regarding their potential interest in the park and outdoor activities and types and sizes of venues they typically organize. The team focused on specific community outreach efforts to include the local Latino community and other underserved populations. The survey was distributed in the following locations and to the following organizations:

  • Belvedere-Tiburon Landmarks Society
  • Strawberry Community Association
