ABOUT THE PORT

While in use since 1851, the Port of Redwood City was founded by City Charter in 1937. The Port of Redwood City is located 18 nautical miles south of San Francisco and is the only deep-water port in the South San Francisco Bay. The Port of Redwood City serves the Silicon Valley region and is a leading west-coast foreign trade agency. The Port’s strategic location fuels the construction industry by moving construction cargo used in the region. The Port of Redwood City specializes in bulk, neo-bulk and liquid cargoes. 

 

The Port has more than one mile of waterfront public access, walkways and viewing areas. These include waterfront parks with picnic areas, restrooms, public art and parking.  Other amenities include watercraft sailboats, kayaks and other personal watercraft available for rent and conference facilities. The Port also offers a public fishing pier and the only public boat launching facility with access to San Francisco Bay south of Coyote Point. A boat launch at the Port of Redwood City is available 24 hours per day, seven days per week.

 

A five-member Board of Port Commissioners, appointed by the City Council, governs the Port.

 

Port goals align with the City of Redwood City's Strategic Initiatives including Economic Development, Transportation, Community Building and Government Operations. In addition, the Port recently contracted with Vickerman and Associates to help the agency launch a strategic visioning process to develop long-term goals and short-term priorities for Port operations.
