Marina Improvement and Remediation Project

BackgroundMarina Yacht Harbor

The San Francisco Marina Yacht Harbor is a destination that welcomes thousands of visitors from all over the world. The oldest recreational marina operating in San Francisco, the harbor has had vessels berthed in its original basin, now known as the West Harbor, since before the 1906 earthquake. The original marina was expanded in the mid-1960s and is now approximately 35 acres. The entire facility has 727 berths, including 15 end ties for guest berthing vessels up to 90-feet length overall, free pump out stations, and a commercial fuel dock.

Composed of two harbors, known as East Harbor (Gashouse Cove) and West Harbor, the Marina extends from Laguna Street in the east to Baker Street in the west, and welcomes a wide range of visitors and recreation activities. With two active Harbors, the Marinas provide different public amenities. 

The East Harbor includes a concession selling fuel and yachts. It also features a marina, parkland with a public restroom, and two parking lots. The West Harbor consists of the West Harbor Marina, Saint Francis and Golden Gate Yacht Clubs, the Harbor Master’s Office, and parkland that includes restrooms, a concession stand, and parking lots.

Scope of Work

The San Francisco Marina project is a unique opportunity for San Francisco Recreation and Park Department (RPD) to redevelop the SF Marina into a waterfront park that serves the diverse communities of San Francisco, providing access to the San Francisco Bay for people of all ages and backgrounds. The Project will implement environmental remediation, establish an environmental stewardship program, improve the Marina Bay Trail, and increase public access and recreational amenities in the Marina and parkland. This project is a joint effort by RPD and Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) to ensure an environmentally and fiscally sustainable marina as defined in a 2021 settlement agreement.

The SF Marina Project will include the following implementation phases: planning, environmental review, public engagement, design, permitting, construction, and close out.

First Phase 2023
The public engagement and planning phases will begin in 2023 with the development of the conceptual design. This phase will include multiple Community Meetings to gather input on the conceptual design of the marina and open space improvements. RPD will work together in coordination with PG&E and the Regional Water Quality Control Board (RWQCB or Water Board) on public engagement for the remediation design. The Water Board is serving as the State lead agency over the environmental remediation, providing Case Officer oversight of the remedial activities. 

Project Cost

The target project budget defined in the Settlement Agreement is $130 million.


The project is being funded by PG&E as work is performed. The City will repay PG&E 9% without interest starting three years after construction is complete to allow for full reoccupation and leading of berths.
