About Redwood Shores

The Redwood Shores area of Redwood City is located on the Redwood peninsula, north of downtown Redwood City. Levees ring this peninsula, since the ground elevations are below that of high tides. Within the interior of the Redwood Peninsula lies Redwood Shores Lagoon.

The lagoon is a focal point of the housing and retail development in Redwood Shores, and provides visual aesthetics, unique aquatic habitat, and recreation activities (boating, swimming, and windsurfing). The lagoon also serves as a storm water retention pond, storing surface runoff during periods of high tide in San Francisco Bay. The City manages the overall operation and maintenance of the lagoon, in cooperation with county, state, and federal oversight agencies.

Redwood Shores Ecological Reserve

The 268-acre Redwood Shores Ecological Reserve is a salt marsh consisting of excellent stands of cord grass and pickleweed on the marsh side of the levee. Vegetation on the levees consists of gum plant and other upland plant types. The gum plant is preferred nesting habitat for the Bay salt marsh song sparrow. The marsh area also provides feeding areas for rails and herons. The adjacent exposed mud flats provide foraging areas for a wide variety of shorebirds. The resident white-tailed kite, short-eared owl and marsh harrier forage for rodents in the marsh and upland areas.

For more information, call the Bay Delta Region Fairfield office at (707) 428-2002.
