Parks survey: Tiburon residents want a pool, kayak launch, more trails
A launch point for kayaking and stand-up paddleboarding, paved and unpaved multiuse trails and a community swimming pool are among the priority amenities for Tiburon residents, according to the results of a recent town survey.
Some 400 residents weighed in on the state of Tiburon’s parks and recreation offerings at the request of the town, which is currently working on a parks master plan to guide the use of its 70-acre parks and open-space system. That includes Shoreline Park, the Old Rail Trail and the Richardson Bay Lineal Park system spanning Blackie’s Pasture, McKegney Green and South of the Knoll Park, as well as tucked-away spots like Cypress Hollow Park, Belveron Mini Park and Zelinsky Park.
The results were presented to the Parks, Open Space and Trails Commission Nov. 7, the first of three presentations to town boards by San Francisco-based WRT Planning. The firm also gave a recreation-focused presentation to the Belvedere-Tiburon Joint Recreation Committee board of directors, which oversees The Ranch, on Nov. 13, after The Ark’s press deadline, and is set to present to the Town Council at its meeting today, Nov 15.
