THE TOWN SEEKS YOUR INPUT ON THE
REIMAGINE CREEK PARK PROJECT
San Anselmo’s Creek Park is undergoing a transformation.
When Marin County initiated the San Anselmo Flood Risk Reduction Project (SAFRR) in 2010, its purpose was to mitigate barriers that cause San Anselmo Creek to overflow its banks and flood our downtown. The project’s main focus is the demolition of the structures that block the flow of the creek during heavy rains.
Removing buildings on San Anselmo Avenue would also open up a Town jewel, Creek Park. SAFRR became an opportunity to piggyback on the County’s construction and Reimagine what Creek Park can be for San Anselmo.
DESIGNING THE VISION
In 2019, the Town conducted a design competition to Reimagine Creek Park. This attracted renowned landscape architecture practices who produced stunning design concepts. The Town Council selected RHAA’s concept, deeming it a transformative vision for this gem in the heart of our downtown.
THE PANDEMIC AND THE PLAZA
While the pandemic has slowed the process, it has also given us the interim plaza. The public space has been a resounding success and has proven the need and value for just such an amenity in downtown San Anselmo.
