Proposed public access amenities include an access ramp to an existing pier, an approximately 668-foot long- section of future San Francisco Bay Trail, an open lawn, a grass-terraced amphitheater, a tot lot, picnic tables, public parking, a central passageway from Clement Street to the shoreline, and paths leading to the waterfront along the eastern and western site boundaries.
