proposed park plan: overview

The creation of a new park is proposed at the east touchdown of the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge in Oakland, California. When completed, the project will open some 45 acres of parkland along the waterfront near the eastern end of the new Bay Bridge East Span.

The park will provide a distinct entryway to the East Bay that connects to the bicycle/pedestrian path on the bridge, and will open safe, multimodal public access to the shoreline, with its amazing vistas of the bay and the new bridge. Gateway Park will highlight the industry, infrastructure and ecology that have shaped the history of this spectacular stretch of shoreline.

A Draft Environmental Impact Report (DEIR) has been prepared for the Gateway Park project. A Notice of Availability of the Draft EIR was released on January 29, 2018. The public comment and review period ran from January 29, 2018 to March 14, 2018. A Final EIR is now being prepared.
