City Seeking Input on Potential Improvements to Carter Park

Half Moon Bay, CA –John L. Carter Memorial Park (Carter Park), located on Main Street near the northern entrance to the City of Half Moon Bay, is a popular destination throughout the year. Residents and visitors alike go there to enjoy picnics, live music and theater, relaxation, and family time. As the City explores possible improvements to this park, the community is encouraged to fill out a short survey and attend a workshop to offer input and express their preferences for what Carter Park may be in the future.

The survey is online at Alternatively, a printed copy of the survey may be obtained at City Hall, 501 Main Street, in Half Moon Bay.

In addition, early design concepts will be presented for discussion at the next Parks & Recreation Commission meeting, taking place on:

The Half Moon Bay Parks Master Plan identifies Carter Park as having great potential to become a more actively-utilized public space, through on-site improvements and enhancements. The Carter Park Improvement Project will consider enhancements which could facilitate greater opportunities for performances and day camps, for example. The overall purpose of this project is to develop a long-term plan for the site and identify projects that may be completed in the near-term to improve the park.

The community feedback will assist City staff in this early design phase, which will subsequently be presented for City Council consideration. The short survey seeks to find out how people presently use Carter Park, and what sorts of activities and events they’d like to see the facility support.

The City wishes to thank interested community members in advance for sharing their thoughts on possible improvements to Carter Park, through the survey and by attending the upcoming workshop.
