Brand new shoreline park opens on eastern side of Bay Bridge

The Richmond Standard

A brand new shoreline park has just opened at the eastern end of the Bay Bridge. And thanks to a continuous San Francisco Bay Trail, the scenic new park is a roughly nine-mile bike ride from Richmond’s Point Isabel Shoreline Park.

Judge John Sutter Regional Shoreline Park is named after the East Bay visionary and former park district board member who first envisioned the park in the 1960s. It features a 600-foot long by 40-foot wide public observation pier built atop six remaining piles from the old Bay Bridge, EBRPD said. It also has a renovated, 24,000-square foot 1930s-era electric train maintenance building (known as the Bridge Yard) that can host large concerts and community events.
