The status of the pier
After nearly eight years, there is no clear path to repair or replace Berkeley pier. The pier was the very heart of Berkeley marina, the only place where you could walk 3,000 feet onto San Francisco Bay. Many thousands of people visited the pier every year – people from all walks of life, who came to fish, walk, or just get away from it all without having to spend money. We need to restore the largest park in our fair city.
I have so many fond memories fishing there every summer as a kid. I was heartbroken to hear it had to be shut down.
