Crane Cove is set to be one of the most celebrated new parks in the City. It is uniquely located within an eligible National Register Historic District at Pier 70 and adjacent to the Port’s large and active ship repair yard. The project will include preservation of the historic ship building slip-way and two historic cranes.
Community planning and design is funded from the 2008 and 2012 Neighborhood Parks Bond, which will also fund the first phase of construction. The completed park will include a variety of landscape and plaza areas, 1,000 feet of Bay shoreline opened, and views of the dry dock, skyline and Bay.
Prior to initiating the Master Planning and Design of Crane Cove Park, significant planning had been undertaken on the site, including the Pier 70 Preferred Master Plan, and the Blue Greenway Planning and Design Guidelines (PDF). This previous planning was utilized as a basis for developing a Crane Cove Park Master Plan and to identify a first phase for construction.
In March 2012, the Port and its consultant team presented and received comments on the Project Aspiration, Existing Conditions, Opportunities and Constraints & Schedule (11mb PDF), which was used to help guide the planning and design process.
In June of 2012, the Port presented for community and Port Commission review and comment two alternative concept plans for Crane Cove Park and conducted an online survey to solicit input on the strengths of each concept. See:

Utilizing the comments received from various stakeholders, the Port and its consultant team developed a Draft Park Master Plan, Cost Estimate and Phasing Plan (see 12/8/12 Workshop Presentation (pdf)) and presented it to the Port Commission, the Port’s Waterfront Design Advisory (WDAC) Board, San Francisco Bay Conservation and Development Commission (BCDC) Design Review Board (DRB) and community stakeholders. The Port also conducted an online survey to solicit input on the Draft Master Plan, cost estimate and phasing.
On May 18th, the Port will host a community workshop to present the Park Master Plan, Cost Estimate and Phasing Plan. Additionally, the Port Commission, BCDC DRB and WDAC will be presented the Master Plan, Cost and Phasing for review meetings. The Port will solicit comments and then finalize the Plan and initiate Schematic Design for the first phase of Crane Cove Park.
