Background

  • The East Bay Regional Park District has operated Crown Memorial State Beach since 1966. The State Beach and the Visitor Center, and a portion of the Bay Trail, are currently the only Alameda recreational facilities managed by EBPRD. Plans for a future regional shoreline park at Alameda Point have not been finalized. 
  • More than 1.3 million people visit Crown Beach every year, and over 50,000 go to Crab Cove for educational programs and annual special events like Concerts at the Cove. 
  • The Park District has a long history in Alameda, providing local jobs, plus millions of dollars over decades invested into Alameda to operate and maintain Crown Beach.
