City Awarded $2.2 million for Jean Sweeney Open Space Park

Planning for the Jean Sweeney Open Space Park on the old Beltline property begins in February, 2013.

The City of Alameda has been awarded grant money for Jean Sweeney Open Space park.

The City of Alameda announced today that it has been awarded a $2,231,000 Metropolitan Transportation Commission grant to construct part of the Cross Alameda Trail, to run through Jean Sweeney Open Space Park.

The commission received 127 applications for grants through its Regional Active Transportation Program, and funded 11, one of which is Alameda’s.

“Many residents have invested a significant amount of energy and time which is critical to the success of this new park,” said Recreation and Park Director Amy Wooldridge.

The cross Alameda trail is to be 21 feet wide, comprised of 16 feet of asphalt for cyclists and pedestrians, and 5 feet of decomposed granite for joggers.

The city plans also to connect the Jean Sweeney park to the trail along Ralph Apezzato Memorial Parkway; that portion of the trail is already funded.

In addition to construction, the grant fill fund bicycle safety classes for teens, adults, families, and students in the four adjacent schools.

The design stage will begin early next year.
