Foster City residents are invited to help the city study options for the use of two city-owned parcels along the bayfront levee pedway.
Werder Park, adjacent to Werder Pier, consists of 2.6 acres and includes a picnic area, restroom and parking lot. DestinationPark is a triangular-shaped parcel near Halibut Street.
A public forum will be held on Wednesday, Feb. 6, 2013, at 6:30 p.m. in the City Council Chambers, 620 Foster City Blvd., to discuss the potential uses of these two parcels. This is the first in a series of public meetings on the subject.
The public is being asked to help answer the following questions:
- What are the possible uses of these locations?
- How can they be best utilized by the city to enhance the quality of life of its residents?
- How can these sites support Foster City as the ideal community on the Peninsula to live, work and play?
The city has hired Callander & Associates, a park planning and landscape architectural firm, to assist in engaging the community to identify viable options for the use of these properties. Some ideas that have already been proposed include:
- Passive open space/landscaping with natural vegetation – Both sites
- Installation of picnic tables and benches – Both sites
- Community garden – Both sites
- Single stall restrooms/operational at Werder Park, new at Destination Park
- Interpretive signage for birds, wildlife, etc. – Both sites
- Potential construction material lay down area for City projects - Werder Park
- Bike or other concession/vendor opportunities - Werder Park
- Ice rink and concession stands – Werder Park
