The Wavecrest property is a unique natural and recreational resource at the edge of Half Moon Bay. At 206 acres, it is a large property that supports a diverse range of uses. PlaceWorks worked with the Peninsula Open Space Trust (POST), the property owner, to develop alternative conceptual land use plans for the property to retain and enhance Wavecrest’s habitat, agricultural land, and recreational assets. Alternatives included regional trail connections, a segment of the California Coastal Trail, an internal trail network, staging areas, wetland enhancement areas, agricultural areas, and a spectrum of recreational amenities.
