Public Invited to Review Draft McKay Master Plan

Monday, Aug 15, 2022

The Park District has been working on a Master Plan for 3.89 acres of new parkland along McKay Avenue at Robert W. Crown Memorial State Beach in Alameda. The project includes a conceptual plan for expanded recreation at the shoreline and design responses to anticipated sea-level rise. Community members provided initial input on project priorities and detailed feedback on draft concepts in the Summer of 2021. Based on this feedback, a Draft Master Plan has been developed, and we are enthusiastic to hear your thoughts.

The Draft McKay Master Plan includes designs for new park improvements, pathways and trails, and adaptation strategies for sea-level rise. The plan is presented in three phases of implementation and maintains or expands many of the popular recreational uses in the areas around the Doug Siden Visitor Center at Crab Cove, including picnic and group gathering spaces, outdoor education and naturalist areas, multi-use trails, and passive shoreline open space.

We invite you to review the plan and take the survey.
