Free Summer Lunches at San Leandro Camp And Parks

Stephen CassidyThe City of San Leandro Recreation and Human Services Department are partnering with the San Leandro Unified School District to offer a “Free Summer Lunch” program this year.
Meals will be provided at Chabot Day Camp and Cherry Grove and Washington Manor Parks.
Washington Manor Park serves the Youth Sports Camps and Summer Adventure Camps and is home of the San Leandro Family Aquatic Center. The park is visited by hundreds of youth and families each day.
“Ensuring the welfare of our children is a responsibility shared by the entire community,” said Mayor Stephen Cassidy. “This program ensures that children have access to nutritious meals during the months when school is not in session.”
The Free Summer Lunch program is federally funded, organized by the Alameda County Community Food Bank and serves free lunches (and breakfast at some locations), June through August, throughout Alameda County to youth 18 and under regardless of their family income.  No paperwork or registration is required; children who show up will be served a nutritious and delicious meal.

Tidewater Boating at MLK Shoreline Park

The East Bay Regional Park District will open the Tidewater Boating Center in a public dedication ceremony led by Board member Doug Siden and Senator Loni Hancock at 1:00pm on March 5. The Boating Center sits on the shore of the Oakland Estuary at Martin Luther King Jr. Regional Shoreline Park at 4675 Tidewater Avenue. The shoreline complex has an ADA accessible dock for boat launching and kayakers.
The Tidewater Boating Center houses a boathouse, storage facility, a security residence and an administrative building.
The roof forms were inspired by the shape of an oar blade, and the complex is intended to be a landmark from water and shore.
Under a multi-year lease agreement, the Oakland Strokes, a non-profit junior rowing organization for middle and high schools, will operate the main boathouse and indoor training area and provide outreach to neighborhood youths.
The East Bay Regional Park District’s Recreation Department will operate the administrative building and additional storage facility. Recreation programs will also take advantage of the estuary access and Bay Trail connection at the park which includes biking, nature study, kayaking and canoeing.
Most of the $4 million facility costs are being funded through a State grant acquired in 2003 and through Measure CC, a Park District parcel tax passed by voters in 2004.
