India Basin Shoreline Park

India Basin Shoreline Park

Located in the Bayview-Hunters Point neighborhood of San Francisco, India Basin Shoreline Park presents a unique opportunity to create connections: uniting the historic boatyard of 900 Innes and the underutilized India Basin Shoreline Park into one park; completing 1.5 miles of accessible shoreline along the San Francisco Bay linking to the Bay Trail and Blue Greenway; fostering better access from the neighborhood to the water.

The historic character of the Scow Schooner Boatyard is preserved by the restoration of the Shipwright’s Cottage and salvaging of boatyard artifacts and materials. Drawing inspiration from the historic marineways once used to repair boats on the site, the Marineway provides a large lawn for active play and group gatherings before sloping down and slipping into the water at a gravel shore. The Marineway is nestled within a native landscape of upland sage slopes, shoreline planting and marsh. A continuous garden and shorewalk promenade traces the historic shoreline to form the neighborhood edge, a social space with porch swings, concessions space, and areas for groups to BBQ and picnic.
