Marina Village Park and my plan to create a community presence

When I first started blogging I was repeatedly told that I should write about what I know.  Well, I know the city I have lived in for nearly 40 years.  Since writing about my community is a good strategy to build credibility I thought, why not?  

I mulled over all the things I could write about and finally selected parks because we have some very lovely park in Alameda which are popular places for the whole family.  Some of our older parks were built on properties of prominent Alamedans.  I love this historical aspect of our park system.

Since I previously had written about some of the parks in Alameda I also plan to write a series of posts about local schools and neighborhoods to further reinforce the belief that I am a community expert.  My expectation is that when people investigate a community they Google the city, its schools and its neighborhoods.  My goal is to make sure my blogs are high on Google page one for each of their selections.  

I regret that I had not created a video of one the very beautiful parks in Alameda previously.  Now I have remedied that by shooting a video of Marina Village Park. The Park is a 5.36 acre park near Marina Village Yacht Harbor.


The park was built on land where Bethlehem shipyard once stood. Bethlehem shipyard built ships for the second world war and during the war this was a busy place.  However, after the war the shipyard site was no longer beings used.  It was transformed into Marina Village in 1985, a 206 acre development with a business park, a 750 berth yacht harbor and charming townhouses.  The beautiful tree lined park has paths, benches, exercise apparatus, play areas for kids and picnic tables.   Marina Park is a serene setting to play, exercise, walk and just relax.  The park, yacht harbor, business park and homes meld together to create a charming community.

Marina Village townhomes are in constant demand.  They are usually sold after a short time on the market.  I believe that is because the townhomes have great floor plans, have great kitchens and baths and have a wonderful view of the park, the estuary and yacht harbor.

Evelyn - I always enjoy reading your local posts about Alameda, California.  You've done a great job with your Marina Village Park video.  It gave me a great feel for the area and what life could be like if I lived there.  Each video you do will help you on your internet marketing plan.  Well done!
