Residents are skeptical about driving through Blackie’s, seek improvements to small parks

Residents helping to plan the future of Tiburon’s 70-acre parks and recreation system collectively raised their eyebrows at a proposal that would let people drive the Blackie’s Pasture shoreline to reach facilities near McKegney Green.


The idea to put a rec center with a gym, pool, tennis and pickleball at the former Richardson Bay Sanitary District settlement ponds is among the concepts proposed by consultant WRT Planning and Design. The firm, which helped create Tiburon’s new 2040 general plan, is now working with the town to create a long-term master plan that also deals with open spaces, trails to improve existing facilities and accessibility and to create more community events and teen and senior spaces.
