Latest Park Developments & Announcements
Sherman Street Moved From Edge of Railroad Building
Sherman Street no longer travels right beside the historical railroad admin building at Jean Sweeney Park. The intersection was changed as part of the Del Monte development. When Clement Street is completed north of the Del Monte building the changes will connect the park section of the Cross Alameda Pike Trail with the next section of bike trail to the East.
Monarch Butterfly Garden for Jean Sweeney Park
The Jean Sweeney Open Space Park Fund and Alameda Recreation & Parks Department, with community support, are working to create a Monarch Butterfly Garden in the East end of the Jean Sweeney park.
The nectar plants are growing nicely in the new Monarch habitat. Winter has been hard on a few of the plant but most are thriving. Volunteers are growing milkweed at their homes. The milkweed plants will be moved to the habitat when the plants are large enough to feed the Monarch caterpillars.
Get more information about the Monarch Butterfly garden here.
