End in Sight for Dunphy Park Improvement Project

Post Date:01/31/2020 3:20 PM

The end is in sight for an improvement project at Dunphy Park that has proven to be one of the most complicated ever undertaken by the City of Sausalito. The final stages of the project will be visible over the next few months as new pathways are installed, trees and shrubs are planted, and grass hydroseed is sprayed on the park lawn.

The lawn area of the park is currently projected to be ready for use in late spring. Other park amenities are either open now or will be open soon. The bocce courts are ready for play, the main parking area has been completed, and park restrooms will get final hookups by the end of February. 

The majority of the acreage that makes up Dunphy Park is landfill, and at one time a portion of the fill area was used as a burn dump. The original shoreline was a place of active use by Native Americans. The combination of these factors with the park's ecologically sensitive location led to a series of slow and complex interactions with state and federal agencies and tribal representatives that City staff expended significant effort to resolve.

Questions about the Dunphy Park Improvement Project may be directed to Kevin McGowan, Director of Public Works and City Engineer, at (415) 289-4176 or
