Robert W. Crown State Beach – Master Plan for Park Expansion at McKay Avenue



The Park District is planning for 3.89 acres of new parkland at Robert W. Crown Memorial State Beach, as well as street improvements along McKay Avenue, in the City of Alameda. The project called the “McKay Master Plan” developed a conceptual plan for the area that provides new recreational amenities and increases shoreline resiliency.

The Park District engaged in a multi-year (2020-2022) planning process to develop the McKay Master Plan. In addition to site analysis and design, this process included engaging the public through online surveys and pop-up events at the Park to solicit input on the overall vision for the area and feedback about layout and program. 

While the McKay Master Plan is intended to provide a long-term vision for the area, implementation of the plan will take place over a number of years. The concept plan is presented in three phases and includes adaptation strategies consistent with anticipated levels of sea-level rise within the time frames associated with each phase. There is currently no timeline for implementation.
