Beach Green

2400 Barnard Way (Map)

Beach Green is an example of creative expansion of our open space inventory. Thanks to a grant from the Regional Water Quality Control Board, an under-used section of beach parking lot was transformed into a permeable turf area. It now does double-duty as a recreation space while it captures urban runoff before it reaches the beach. The adjacent fenced-off asphalt area is a perfect spot for children learning to ride a bike or informal roller hockey games. The lot and turf are open for parking on a handful of peak beach use days annually.

  • .62 acres
  • Grass area
  • Enclosed asphalt area
  • Next to Perry’s Café
