Doyle Hollis Park
Designing the Park
The Redevelopment Agency acquired, cleared, and remediated the former site of the Dutro Company building to develop a 1.25-acre park. This park is bounded by Hollis St., 61st St., Doyle St., and 62nd St. In April 2005, the Agency retained Gates & Associates who led the community through the design process.
The park will include a children's play area, an open lawn in the center of the site for active recreation, picnic areas, amphitheater, basketball court, and rain garden.
Public Art Fountain
The park also contains a public art fountain designed by artist Masayuki Nagase. The fountain is composed of seven carved granite boulders set upon a circular paving design, with the water feature integrated into a central large boulder. The inspiration for the work is based on the idea of the passage of time throughout history and is reflective of how human life continues from one generation to the next.
Agency funding for the park was supplemented with grants from the EPA
, the Alameda County Bay-Friendly Landscaping Grant Program, Community Development Block Grants, and Workforce Housing Reward Program.
