As part of the the City of Albany’s Measure WW – per capita Local Grant program Parks & Recreation Commission is recommending improvements to the Cove at the Albany Waterfront ($50,000).
You can read the full details at http://www.albanyca.org in the City Council Meeting 11/2/2009.
Part of the new proposed design includes improvements to the Cove, Oasis and Triangle Area…
“as you approach the cove up the path to its right, you will see a row of fruit trees with raised beds of vegetables lining the path to your left.”
Oasis Seating Area: Move bicycle racks out of the view of seating and viewing area but into a highly visible location within view of people to inhibit tampering with bikes. Install one or two picnic benches. Install new seating area facing south west toward the beach within the new tree planting.
Triangle Planting: Planting located at the triangle of the access road and path, directly south of the benches. Construct two four foot walls out of urbanite, one wall on the low east side and one wall midway in order to terrace the area and allow for mounding of appropriate planting soil.
