New bay front path opened from Shelter Island to Harbor Drive
A new promenade providing access for pedestrians and cyclists to Shelter Island in Point Loma was opened to the public yesterday.
Tom Driscoll of Driscoll, Inc., which owns Driscoll’s Wharf and the Driscoll Boatyard on Shelter Island, was joined by Port of San Diego Board of Commissioners chair Lou Smith and other business owners on the island in a ribbon-cutting ceremony.
The walkway provides a bay front route from Shelter Island Drive to Harbor Drive to the north, providing a safer and more scenic alternative to traveling along nearby Rosecrans Street. It’s part of a larger project to be called Intrepid Landing, named after an America’s Cup yacht piloted by a member of the Driscoll family. The development also includes a recently-completed 40-slip marina and a restaurant and commercial space is forthcoming, with construction expected to begin early next year.
