In 2003 the Discovery Bay Community Services District took on the
responsibility of maintaining the “Common” landscape areas/parks
within a portion of the community that is known as the “Discovery
Bay Proper Area-Service Area M-8,” which is now called Discovery
Bay Lighting & Landscaping Zone #8. The landscape zone #8
encompasses Cornell Park, Roberta Fuss Tot Lot, all common
landscape streetscapes, levees, and islands on the east side of
Discovery Bay. Due to the age of the majority of these sites, the
District approved the creation of a Landscape Master Plan for a
design concept for future capital improvements. The Board of
Directors has currently approved two renovation projects for 2010
for this zone. These projects include the west side of Discovery
Bay Boulevard from Seal Way up to and
including Sand Point Road, as well as Willow Lake
Road streetscape improvements.
In 2006, the District formed the Discovery Bay Lighting &
Landscaping Zone #9 in the Ravenswood Housing Development area
that is located off of Newport Drive and Slifer
Drive that consists of common landscape areas and a park.
Zone 9: Wilde Drive to Keats Court, Point of Timber, and Poe
Drive to the end – Southside, Poe Drive
In 2008, the town began the maintenance of all public common
landscape areas and parks that are owned by the County. These
common landscape areas are broken out into three independently
funded zones that are as follows:
Zone 35: Trail/pathway between Newport Drive and
Safeway & the median landscaping on Bixler Road.
Zone 57: Common landscape areas, parking areas
& Regatta Park in the Discovery Bay Southwest
(Centex) Development. Porthole Drive, Bixler Road – From
Regatta Drive South to Highway 4, Pedestrian Walk
Zone 61: Common landscape areas
& Slifer Park in the area of the Discovery Bay
West housing development
from Slifer Park on Newport Drive to the
Lakes Home Development on Bixler Road. Park and Ride –
Bixler Road Westside to The Lakes Northern most exit (Doesn’t
include entries or exits). Point of Timber both sides, Preston
Drive, Slifer Drive, Sussex Court, Plymouth Court, Sterling
Court, Dorchester Court, Coronado Court, Cambridge Court,
Birmingham Court, Berkshire Lane, Sheffield Court, Amesbury
Court, and Emerson Court.
After a very wet winter season that created endless delays, renovation work on the Town of Discovery Bay Dog Park will begin again starting June 3rd. Crews will begin with removing the old basketball court asphalt, creating new curbing, adding specialized bark, and completing turf and irrigation work.
Discovery Bay parks offer a wide range of recreational outdoor
activities open to the public. Park hours are from dawn to dusk.
Use of facilities are on a “first come, first served” basis;
however, reservations are recommended.
