Schoen Park Conversion to Parking

About

Project goals

  • Create additional parking spaces along the northern side of Spinnaker Point Drive to help alleviate the lack of parking issue within the canal area
  • Realign the sidewalk in anticipation of the Tiscornia Marsh Project (headed by Marin Audubon Society) that will create a larger levee in this area
  • Minimize construction expenses by utilizing City staff to assist with the demolition of the playground area

Budget

Planning/Design$75,000
Construction$675,000

Overview

Located along Spinnaker Point Drive, Schoen Park is a small playground serving the Canal and Spinnaker Point communities. After considering the community’s needs and following extensive upgrades to playground equipment located at the nearby Pickleweed Park, the City has decided to repurpose the Schoen Park area. In the future, the playground equipment will be removed to accommodate two planned projects as follows:  

    1. The creation of additional on-street parking, lead by the City,  
    2. Modifications to the existing Bay levee, led by the Marin Audubon Society.  For more information, please visit www.tiscorniamarshp.org. The Tiscornia Marsh project is a long-term project looking at conceptual design at this time.

The Schoen Park Modifications project will benefit the overall community by creating approximately 20 new parking spaces for nearby residents.
