Via the Point Reyes Light: "Young bikers and skaters in Point Reyes Station are petitioning for a park where they could safely practice and hang out. The California Statewide Park Program identified the area as a critically underserved community in 2018, a designation that allows for competitive grant funding under Proposition 68.

Now, Madeline Hope, the director of the Tomales Bay Youth Center, is hoping to capitalize on the opportunity. “We’d like to make a case for young people getting some additional places to be that aren’t being elbowed out by the visitor population, or traffic, or all these other competing stresses,” she said. “The spirit of this petition is to say that kids want to be in the community, they just want to figure out how.

Local skaters are excited about the idea. Eduardo Romo, a Tomales High graduate, said he finds that it’s easy to get sucked into substance use when there isn’t much to do, and skating in the streets isn’t safe, either. Multiple skaters have wiped out and been injured on the hill headed south from the school. Supervisor Dennis Rodoni said he supports the idea, though finding a location, along with securing funding and maintaining a park, present challenges.

"Drakes Beach will be closed from May 1 to Aug. 31 while construction crews reconfigure the parking lot and restore a wetland. The work is part of the Point Reyes National Seashore’s two-year road improvement project, which is over 70 percent complete. About half of the two-acre parking lot will be removed, and the remaining area will be reconfigured with 314 spaces, down from 399. Three metal culverts will be taken out and surrounding upland areas will be excavated to create a two-acre wetland with mostly freshwater and some tidal influence on the south side of the lot." 😕

An update from PRNPS “There will be NO closures on Limantour Road next week.”
Via PRNPS: “Daytime Limantour Road Closures:
Tuesday April 13-Friday April 16, 8am-5pm

Starting Tuesday April 13, 2021 Limantour Road in Point Reyes National Seashore will be closed from 8am to 5pm. This daytime closure will be in effect through Friday, April 16, 2021. The road closure is part of the park’s 2-year https://highways.dot.gov/ and https://www.marincounty.org/depts/pw road improvement project.

Drainage culverts are being replaced along Limantour Road. Most of the culverts require minimal road delays and one way traffic control. The installation of a deeper culvert, however, is more complex and requires full daytime closures for the crews to work safely and efficiently.”
