Description

On December 6, 2016, The Park District Board of Directors renamed Martinez Regional Shoreline to Ted and Kathy Radke Martinez Regional Shoreline in honor of Ted Radke and his wife, Kathy. Ted Radke served on the Park District Board from 1978 to 2014 and was instrumental in preserving the Martinez waterfront, increasing funding for land acquisition and working with legislators to protect the environment. Kathy Radke worked to save Mt. Wanda from development, preserve Franklin Hills as open space and, with her husband, was a co-founder of the Contra Costa Ecology Action Education Institute. See press release.

The shoreline park offers visitors a variety of experiences. There are group picnic areas, Baseball fields, bocce ball courts and soccer fields in the eastern section of the park, operated by the City of Martinez. The District operates the western section with its quiet open lawns, small family picnic areas, and ponds and creeks. Nearly three miles of trails offer peaceful walks through the marsh and along the shoreline.
