A Connection to the Bay

Bay Rise Park is the transformation of a 9.4-acre parcel of vacant land on the Burlingame Bayfront into a nature and recreation park for public benefit. Located on a stretch of shoreline with the lowest percentage of open space in the Bay, the park will serve as a natural oasis for visitors and residents by restoring native habitats and providing much-needed facilities for recreation, education, and events of up to 200 people.

By restoring the Bay ecosystem's natural progression of habitats, the park's design will act as a demonstration project for an innovative, nature-based approach to sea level rise adaptation.

The park is currently in the design and approvals stage. Construction will begin in 2024 and the park will open in 2027.
