Port of Redwood Hosts Music Events


The Port of Redwood City (Port) hosted a community ribbon-cutting ceremony for the newly completed public fishing pier Thursday, March 3.

The new pier replaces an old wooden pier built in the 1960s and includes sleek wire cables for optimal waterfront viewing, interpretational signage highlighting local fish species, ADA improvements and peek-a-boo decking to see the water beneath your feet.

Since the pier is located in the main channel of Redwood Creek, dredging is frequently carried out to keep waters in the Port deep enough for large cargo ships, which also attracts some larger fish species such as the leopard shark and white sturgeon. The fishing spot is also known for housing jacksmelt, striped bass and bat rays.

Port Executive Director, Kristine Zortman said the fishing pier is another step at reenergizing the waterfront by turning this once-obscure Port into a destination.
