A Save The Bay 50th Anniversary Campaign priority
GOAL: $0.6 million
PURPOSE: Expand visitor capacity and reduce carbon footprint
When we opened our award-winning Bay Center in 2005, a former city landfill was transformed into a new public window on the Bay. We host thousands of visitors, from students and campers to fishermen and community groups, every year. The only thing missing is a public pier.
Our vision has always to been to construct a public pier to support boating, fishing and kayaking. To fulfill this vision, Save The Bay is creating a Public Access Fund, which will fund capital investments at Fields Point, including:
- A new public pier to accommodate fishing, boating and kayaking.
- Improved and expanded parking areas, including new surfaces and lighting, to increase parking capacity and safety and to improve the visitor experience.
- Additional solar panels to increase renewable energy production and reduce the carbon footprint of the Bay Center.
