Crane Cove Park

Crane Cove is set to be one of the most celebrated new parks in the City. It is uniquely located within the 

Union Iron Works Historic District at Pier 70 (PDF) and adjacent to the Port’s large and active ship repair yard. The project will include preservation of the historic ship building slip-way and two historic cranes.

Community planning and design is funded from the 2008 and 2012 Neighborhood Parks Bond, which will also fund the first phase of construction. The completed park will include a variety of landscape and plaza areas, 1,000 feet of Bay shoreline open to the public, adaptive reuse of historic resources, including slipway 4 and the cranes, and views of the dry dock, city skyline and Bay.

Prior to initiating the Master Planning and Design of Crane Cove Park, significant planning had been undertaken on the site, including the Pier 70 Preferred Master Plan, and the Blue Greenway Planning and Design Guidelines (PDF). This previous planning was utilized as a basis for developing a Crane Cove Park Master Plan and to identify a first phase for construction.
