Sunset in Marina Bay Harbor

Sunset in Marina Bay Harbor. Photo provided by Pat Kiely.

Marina Bay, located on Richmond’s Inner Harbor, was originally the home of the Kaiser Shipyards during World War II. Beginning in the 1980s, Richmond Marina Bay was redeveloped to provide waterfront living and is also home to many retail and light-industry businesses.

Other distinctive features of Richmond Marina Bay include the Marina Bay Harbor, the San Francisco Bay Trail, parks, a national historic park, and the Rosie the Riveter Memorial.

Marina Bay Harbor

The Marina Bay Harbor provides boaters access to the San Francisco Bay, San Pablo Bay and the Delta, San Francisco, and the Pacific. The harbor home to an 850-berth marina as well as a yacht club.

The San Francisco Bay Trail

The Bay Trail is a planned recreational corridor that will encircle San Francisco and San Pablo Bays with a continuous 500-mile network of bicycling and hiking trails. With its 32 miles of shoreline, The City of Richmond has more shoreline than any other city on San Francisco and San Pablo Bays. The Bay Trail in Richmond links all of the parks along Richmond’s Southern Shoreline, connecting Point Isabel with Miller/Knox Regional Shoreline via the City’s Marina Bay parks.

Rosie the Riveter/World War II Home Front National Historic Park

Established on October 24, 2000, the park commemorates the nation’s home front efforts and the impact on those at home supporting the troops during World War II. The City of Richmond and the Kaiser Shipyards played a key role in the efforts to win the war. However, World War II home front activities brought about unprecedented changes in American life and the park captures and preserves the stories and sites associated with those years. The Visitor Education Center, a good place to begin a tour of the park, is located at 1414 Harbour Way South.

Rosie the Riveter Memorial

Dedicated on October 14, 2000, the memorial commemorates the women who worked during World War II to construct military transport and cargo ships. Designed by Susan Schwartzenberg, a visual artist, and Cheryl Barton, a landscape architect, the memorial represents a ship’s hull under construction. Photographs, news clippings, postcards and other memorabilia are framed in the sculpture. The sculpture is situated on a walkway that is the length of the vessel’s keel, and contains 25 walkway tiles showcasing women’s quotes and historical timelines.

Marina Bay Parks

  • Shimada Friendship Park: Located at the end of Marina Bay Parkway South, the park is a monument to Shimada, Japan, one of Richmond’s sister cities.
  • Barbara & Jay Vincent Park: Created in 1997 by the City of Richmond to honor Barbara’s and Jay’s lifelong work and contribution to establishing public access and parks along the shoreline of San Francisco and San Pablo Bays.
  • Lucretia Edwards Park: Dedicated in 2003 and named after a local community activist, Lucretia W. Edwards. The park commemorates the contribution of the Bay Area Shipyard during World War II.
  • Marina Bay Park and Green: Once the home of Kaiser Shipyard 2, the park provides picnic facilities and houses the Rosie the Riveter Memorial.

What is the MB LLMD?

The Marina Bay Landscaping and Lighting Maintenance District (MB LLMD) is a partnership with the City of Richmond established in 2009 to supplement the City allocation for landscaping and lighting maintenance in Marina Bay. To provide Marina Bay with a higher level of service, property owners contribute funds through a special property tax (voted in by local property owners) that provides 58% of the funding for maintenance of Marina Bay’s 320 acres of public areas. The MB LLMD property tax is collected with the annual Contra Costa County property tax assessment. The City of Richmond contributes the remaining 42% of the funding for maintenance.

“The Neighborhood Council provides the machinery for citizens to function directly in shaping their own community life.” — Lucretia Edwards

 

Who we are . . . . .

The City of Richmond enabled the formation of Neighborhood Councils in recognition of the value of Self Governance. The Marina Bay Neighborhood Council provides a forum for all Marina Bay residents to exchange ideas on community issues, to help solve neighborhood problems, and to function as a resource for information concerning public and private agencies, government entities and the legislative process.

  • We are organized and managed by Marina Bay Residents.
  • Everyone has an opportunity to speak out to make a difference in the Marina Bay Neighborhood.
  • We are empowered to act on issues of crime, traffic, local schools, policies, and intended actions of governmental bodies.
  • We assist in making the changes necessary for building a clean, safe and attractive environment in which to live.
  • Our success depends on the active involvement of volunteers, both residents and business owners, to get to know each other and to work together to promote a thriving community.
  • We cannot as an organization or as individuals representing the organization, discuss at our meetings or support or oppose candidates for office.
  • We can, however, support or oppose causes and measures and on occasions may vote whether or not to endorse such a cause or measure.

Our strength comes from our membership. The more members we have, the louder our “voice”. Please join the Marina Bay Neighborhood Council so that we can be heard.

A Sampling of Our Accomplishments:

  • Provided a forum for the City of Richmond to identify construction alternatives for the Moody Underpass project
  • Gained absolute assurance that there would be a 24/7 access to our communities during construction of the underpass.
  • Blocked a proposal for a cement processing facility at the Port of Richmond.
  • Created an action plan banning alcohol and amplified sound in the Marina Bay parks.
  • Developed a memo of understanding with California Oils regarding the management of odors being emitted.
  • Worked with the State of California Dept of Health Services to ensure that the facility’s architectural standards fit with the Marina Bay environment.
  • Promoted improved traffic signage (including stop signs) and safety fences in the Marina Bay area.
  • Discouraged development of Bio Fuel Refineries on Harbor Way South within the Marina Bay Neighborhood sphere of influence.
  • Discouraged the development of a Crematorium / Mausoleum on Marina Way South.
