Marina Yacht Harbor Renovation Projects

Aerial View of the MarinaThe San Francisco Marina is composed of two harbors, known as East Harbor (Gashouse Cove) and West Harbor. The East Harbor consists of 342 boat slips, the City Yachts sales, and fuel concession, and parkland, which includes a restroom and two parking lots. The Marina Green, a part of the marina and a major city park, is situated between the East and West Harbors.

The San Francisco Marina facilities have existed in their present configuration since 1963. The floating docks and gangways are made of timber and have degraded over time. The on-dock utilities have degraded as well as become obsolete.
