New park to open east of boat channel at Liberty Station!

A new esplanade is almost ready to open on the east side of the boat channel at Liberty Station. I took this photo from the Nimitz pedestrian bridge.

A new public park will be opening soon at Liberty Station!

I love parks. So a discovery I made yesterday made me very happy. A completely new esplanade is being created at Liberty Station! The narrow park will run along the east shore of the boat channel, allowing visitors to walk, recreate or just relax on either side of the water. The shady trees and green grass appear ready to go! Three new hotels are also being built near the esplanade, at the site of the old Wally Park airport parking lot.

Here are some photos I took during yesterday’s walk. You can see the progress being made and a couple of informative signs.

Sign declares Coming Soon - Public Esplanade and Coastal Access. Sketches show people enjoying the new park.

A dusty sign at Liberty Station shows the narrow new esplanade. I had to alter the photo to make out details. The three dark forms in the upper right corner, I believe, will be new hotels.
