Alameda Magazine: DePave Park Remains a Nebulous Concept, December 2, 2019

The idea to turn a paved 14-acre western edge of Seaplane Lagoon into an ecologically-rich shoreline park has fans but nothing has been settled yet because of the looming cost.
The concept, loosely known as DePave Park, was included in the council-approved 2014 Alameda Point Town Center and Waterfront Specific Plan. That plan called for the removal of the pavement from the west side of the lagoon and the addition of wetlands that can naturally adapt to rising sea level and climate change to create a waterfront park “that combines a proactive ecological agenda with a compelling visitor experience by placing a picnic, camping, and interpretive program within a large-scale sustainable landscape.”
