Client: Jean Sweeney Open Space Park - City of Alameda
Location: Alameda, California
Product: 114, 511, 427, 3001AG, 724S
December 15, 2018 was the grand opening date for the Jean Sweeney Open Space Park. The park is a tribute to the vision Jean Sweeney had for the former railroad property. When all phases of the park have been complete, it will be Alameda Recreation and Parks' largest park at 25 acres. The initial phase of the park includes open space areas, a natural based playground, picnic area and bike trails. Future phases include a community garden, demonstration gardens, an outdoor classroom and a bicycle skills loop.
For the first phase of the park, we supplied site amenities that included our precast concrete timber picnic tables and benches, dual containment trash/recycle receptacles, barbecues and a precast concrete sign with posts. The concrete timber picnic tables and benches included reliefs to accommodate future plaques for donors and contributors. This was the first project that featured our new precast concrete timber bench with armrests. The park was also the first to include our timber table with wheelchair companion seating.
