In 1970 the City of Sausalito purchased the lands now know as Dunphy Park. Soon after,a group calling themselves "Community Park Volunteers" came up with a plan for "interim development" and over the next ten years the Park was developed into what you see today. There have been a few additions such as the Bocce Ball Courts, but for the most part, the park is unchanged from the original "interim development"
In 2003, with a grant from the California Coastal Conservancy and Marin County, the City was able to purchase the lands just south of the Park along with the former railroad right of way along Bridgeway included in the green outline in the above map.
At the urging of the Friends of Dunphy Park, the Sausalito City Council ranked "Dunphy Park improvement plan including shoreline, trees, ADA and parking" as their 5th highest priority for Fiscal Year 2013-14.
Although the City does not currently have the necessary funds to improve Dunphy Park, the first step is the Planning process in which we are about to embark.
We invite you to take part in this public process so that we can continue the mission that Sausalito residents embarked on over 40 years ago.
This is the moment we've been waiting for, come help us to finally improve our beloved park.
