Document Description
McNears Beach Park was first developed for private use in the 1950's. Sited along San Pablo Bay, the park was acquired by the county of Marin in 1970 and opened to the public during that same year. This McNears Beach Park Master Plan was prepared during nearly two years of development that included extensive public outreach including a free day at the park where patrons were invited to give input. The master plan provides a promenade along the shoreline creating better connectivity between the northern and southern portions of the park, a large zero entry swimming pool, splash pads, beach access, eating and conference facilities, a children's nature play area, a special event venue, a kayak launch, and upgraded picnic facilities. When combined the revisioned park will include opportunities for water adventures, family picnics, kayaking, weddings and events.
