New Trail, Open Space & Enhanced Wildlife Habitat Coming to Union City and Hayward Area – Tell Us What You Think

Spanish language version

Coming to Union City and Hayward-area baylands, with construction estimated to start in 2024:

  • A new 4-mile section of the San Francisco Bay Trail
  • New access for wildlife viewing, fishing, walking and biking
  • Tidal salt marsh restoration on 3,000 acres
    • Habitat for endangered species and other wildlife
    • Helps buffer the shore from high tides
  • Enhancements for shorebirds and waterfowl on 800 acres of ponds
  • Levee improvements so we don’t increase flooding risk

We want to hear from you: Help us design this public open space, and help us understand how we can lessen construction impacts in your neighborhood.

We invite you to help us choose viewing sites!

Here is a slideshow of four candidate sites, with photos of views from each. Click on each site to see the views. Which viewing site is your favorite? Let us know in the survey that follows.


Please note the site – A, B, C, or D – and then take this survey

Project managers are reaching out to the community to dialogue with you not only about planned recreation, but also the upcoming work, possible construction impacts, ways we plan to minimize and avoid those impacts, and other possible steps we could take.
