Document Description
The East Bay Regional Park District has prepared an amendment to the Ardenwood Historic Farm Land Use Plan. The Land Use Plan Amendment (LUPA) guides the management of natural resources and facility and infrastructure improvements at this 208-acre park that interprets historical farming life and techniques in California. The Ardenwood Historic Farm LUPA is a long-range plan containing recommendations intended to protect natural and cultural resources and to improve visitor opportunities and maintenance and operations of the park. Key recommendations of the LUPA include: preserving existing farm fields in agricultural use and maintaining eucalyptus woods and walnut orchards; retaining the overall historic character and form of the park's core area; redesigning the park entry with a pedestrian plaza containing a separate entrance and exit; restoring historic buildings to public interpretive exhibits; constructing a building for indoor group interpretive programming; developing a rail shop complex, in phases, on the east side of the park; constructing a shade structure; upgrading electrical service to meet current and future needs; upgrading and extending electrical, water and sewer systems to serve proposed facilities; installing additional restrooms at the park entrance; and developing a park service yard and barns to serve park operations.
