The new promenade provides improved recreation, educational, aesthetic, environmental, and economic benefits. Numerous amenities include a first-class marina, harbormaster facility, dry stack storage for boats, parking areas, plazas, and pedestrian and bicycle pathways. The promenade connects the south shore from Weber Point Events Center – a 10-acre waterfront park adjacent to Downtown – to the Morelli Boat Launch Facility, also designed by Callander Associates.
The backbone of the City of Stockton’s downtown revitalization is the Joan Darrah waterfront promenade along the San Joaquin River. As prime consultant, Callander Associates was heavily involved in the design and public outreach of this award-winning project including assembling a special funding package for the City’s legislative lobbyist.
