Festive Celebration of New National Historical Park Museum and Bay Trail Segment
Who is Douglas Herring & Associates?
Hi  ,
Having completed the environmental review for this project, I wanted to personally invite you to this festive event:  a celebration of a new Bay Trail segment and a future museum in the historic factory where Rosie the Riveter helped assemble jeeps and tanks during World War II. 

Our firm performed the environmental review for the redevelopment of this 465,000-square-foot building as a mixed-use project with numerous exciting uses, including the museum, a culinary school, jazz club, live/work space, and possible future ferry terminal, among other planned/existing uses. 

Come and ride the new trail along the Bay with us on Sunday, help out the Lance Armstrong Foundation, and have a yummy bayside brunch!

Festive Celebration of New National Historical Park Museum and SF Bay Trail Segment

Festive grand openings of the new Ford Point Bay Trail and BoilerHouse Restaurant at Craneway Pavillion will be celebrated on Sunday, July 5 along with a LIVESTRONG bike ride benefitting the Lance Armstrong Foundation. The quarter-mile Ford Point trail section is the keystone for closing the last San Francisco Bay Trail gap on Richmond's southern shoreline resulting in 15 miles of continuous Bay Trail connecting Golden Gate Fields in Albany with Point Richmond and Miller/Knox Regional Shoreline.

Trail and Visitor Center Launch
The official opening of this new trail will be marked with a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 9:30 a.m. at the Oil House site of the future visitor center for Rosie the Riveter/World War II Home Front National Historical Park.  Speakers will include Richmond Mayor Gayle McLaughlin, State Assemblymember Nancy Skinner, and National Park Superintendent Martha Lee.

Bike Benefit
Guests arriving by bicycle anytime from 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. will automatically be counted as participants in the Bay Trail Bike Brunch Bash benefiting LIVESTRONG and the Lance Armstrong Foundation (LAF).  Learn more about the Bash and LAF at:  Bay Trail Bike Brunch Bash

Bayside Brunch
Whether arriving by bicycle (with complimentary bike valet), on foot, by car or other transport, everyone is invited to indulge in brunch at the grand opening of the BoilerHouse Restaurant. Selections on the special Bay Trail Bike Brunch Bash menu will include House Made Granola, Buttermilk Griddle Cakes and Bacon, Potato & Cheddar Frittata-priced $4.50 to $8.

The ribbon-cutting ceremony will take place at the Oil House on the eastern side of the Ford Assembly Building. Download the Richmond Bay Trail Map for alternative bicycle and walking routes. Those driving may take Marina Bay Parkway exit from I-580 in Richmond, head toward the Bay and after about 0.4 mile turn right on Regatta Blvd.  At end of  Regatta Blvd. turn left on Marina Way South and park near Lucretia Edwards Park to walk west on the Bay Trail to the Oil House.
