Re: “A Dangerous Playground

I am a project manager at the State Coastal Conservancy. The Devil's Playground was acquired by the City with a grant from the Conservancy and a bargain sale from PALCO. I don't think that this parcel was gifted to the City through non-profits, contrary to what the article says.
The Redwood Region Audubon Society easement, which the Conservancy authorized in 2009, applies to all of Parcel 4. The easement actually does not require public access- I think this is another error in your article. It requires the property be preserved in a predominantly natural and open space condition, and allows limited development such as the construction of facilities for public access for wildlife viewing and passive recreation. That being said, the Conservancy supports the idea of safe public access to the property, which will require cleaning up the area. I also want to see help provided to the homeless community camping in the area, and applaud the City for its efforts to provide a place for those folks, while also cleaning up the area and developing a trail.
