Gridley Park is the heart of the West Bayfront. This historic community park, at the intersection of Liberty Street and West 6th Street, provides space for residents to enjoy the beautiful surroundings, a gathering space for community events, a play space for children, and a central focal point for residential neighborhoods that surround it.

Since summer of 2022, OWB has been working with neighbors to prepare a plan for improvements at Gridley Park to guide future investments in this important community green space. Based on feedback from the OWB 2022 Community Survey and guided by a resident committee which has met regularly since September, Dahlkemper Landscape Architects has created a draft plan for Gridley Park. 

The plan focuses on changes that will make it safer to access and use the park such as pedestrian improvements and lighting. Landscaping and thoughtfully planted trees would highlight the historical design, while new amenities including open play field, additional seating, and an expanded natural playground meet the needs of all residents.

Please visit our Gridley Park draft survey to share your feedback. Let us know what you like, what you’d change, and what improvements should happen first!
