Marina Bay, is located in Richmond's protected Richmond Inner Harbor. It was developed in the mid-1980s in an effort to clean up what had been up to that point the defunct World War II-era Kaiser Shipyards.
Marina Bay was planned as an upscale residential waterfront community with apartments, condominiums, townhouses, and houses. The area is also home to many retail and light-industry businesses. The City of Richmond wants to attract more research and development into the area. The city considers it one of its success stories and uses it as a template for other projects.
The area hosts an 850-berth marina. Marina Bay Yacht Harbor is also known as Richmond Marina Bay and was built by the City of Richmond in the early 1980s. The berths are divided into four sections along the north shore: D-Dock, E-Dock, F-Dock & G-Dock (from east to west). Berth sizes range from 26' long to 61' long with several end-ties available up to 100' long. A launch ramp is available in the northwest corner of the marina.
The San Francisco Bay Trail is a bicycle and pedestrian trail that will allow continuous travel around the shoreline of San Francisco Bay. As of 2020, 356 miles (573 km) of the trail have been completed. When finished, the trail will be over 500 miles (800 km) of paved and gravel paths, bike lanes, and sidewalks, linking 47 cities across nine counties and crossing seven toll bridges. It is a project of the Association of Bay Area Governments (ABAG) and the Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC), in collaboration with other agencies, private companies, non-profit organizations, and advocacy groups.
The trail is intended to provide recreation for hikers and bicyclists, viewpoints for wildlife, space for environmental education, and corridors for bicycle transportation as well as access to historic, natural and cultural sites, including over 130 parks.
The marina Entrance Channel (also known as the Ford Channel after the Ford Plant along its northern shore) was dredged to -12' mean lower low water in the Fall of 2011. The marina basin itself is 12' to 18' deep at MLLW, a legacy of the time when the basin was Shipyard #2 and used to construct Liberty Ships during World War II.
Once a center of industry and shipbuilding during World War II, the city of Richmond is focused on revitalization efforts that include a green revolution, with a solar-powered waste treatment plant; industrial printers; metal scrap recyclers; and manufacturers participating in green business initiatives. The city plans to add green jobs, create a cleaner community, and build a thriving tax base that can support better public services. Richmond homes vary in style, including traditional, Cape Cod, contemporary, and French Country. Local residents can participate in a composting program that collects food scraps in specially marked street-side containers and offers gardeners free compost for their backyard gardens. Richmond also recycles its old buildings, too; the historic Ford assembly plant near the port of Richmond was converted into the Rosie the Riveter WWII Home Front National Historic Park, operated by the National Park Service. Downtown is also experiencing revitalization, especially along Macdonald Avenue, the main commercial district that runs from 8th to 16th streets. The Richmond Main Street Initiative brings arts, music, dance, and theater to the area, transforming it into a pedestrian-friendly urban village. Progressive politics are a part of life in Richmond. The city is the largest in the U.S. to have a Green Party mayor in Gayle McLaughlin.
