Renderings Show Off Future Plans For Ocean BeachScreenshots: Ocean Beach Open Space Landscape Design Summary/SPUR

New renderings of Ocean Beach have been released, depicting what the areas of the beach south of Sloat Boulevard and north of Lincoln Boulevard might look like in the future. 

As the Examiner reports, the images were created by SPUR (the San Francisco Bay Area Planning and Urban Research Association), in partnership with engineering firm AECOM, as part of a larger Ocean Beach open space landscape design summary.

The landscape design report is part of an ongoing effort to mitigate environmental concerns like erosion and sea-level rise along Ocean Beach, as well as improve public access to the beach from places like Golden Gate Park.

Check out some of the designs.

One of the Ocean Beach Master Plan’s key recommendations is the phased closure of the Great Highway south of Sloat Boulevard.
