Ice House Plaza Opens in Downtown Sausalito

Post Date:11/01/2019 1:45 PM

A large and enthusiastic crowd attended the opening of the new Ice House Plaza at a special ceremony in downtown Sausalito on Saturday, October 26. The ceremony was presided over by Sausalito Historical Society President Jerry Taylor, who acknowledged the large number of donors and contributors who made the project possible.

The new plaza fronts Bridgeway on City land adjacent to the Ice House Museum and Visitor Center at the corner of Bay Street and Bridgeway. Features include wooden benches, concrete seating walls, native plants, a wooden platform for making presentations to local schoolchildren, and a historical timeline inlaid into the pavement along the path of a rail line created with tile from Heath Ceramics.

The new plaza is also the home of a life-sized bronze statue of Farley cartoonist and longtime Sausalito Historical Society volunteer Phil Frank, who passed away in 2007. Farley's sidekick Bruce the Raven, also in bronze, stands on Phil's left shoulder.

Plans for the Ice House Plaza were approved by the Planning Commission and the Historic Landmarks Board in February 2017. In May 2017, the City Council approved the placement of the statue. Construction at the site began in January 2019.
