Latest Park Developments & AnnouncementsAFTER 20 YEARS! THE PARK WILL OPEN
In 1998 Jean Sweeney, with her husband Jim, went to see the 27 acres of the Alameda Belt Line Railroad switching yard, nearly smack in the middle of Alameda's big island. Only the neighbors seemed to know the yard existed. The land was so quiet and serene, Jean told Jim, this land has to become a park. And on December 15th 2018 it will finally become the park Jean dreamed of.
See the City Of Alameda Press Release announcing the opening day here.
MEMORIAL PICNIC TABLES ARE STILL AVAILABLE!
Memorial picnic tables for the Jean Sweeney Park are still available. Your memorial plaque will be placed on a picnic table in the beautiful Rotary Picnic Pavilion. The park will be opening in December so time to obtain a memorial table before opening day is short. More information about the memorial tables can be found here.
There are 27 acres between the East and West ends.
