Berkeley Marina (By Daderot (I took this photograph.) [Public domain], via Wikimedia Commons)

The City of Berkeley was granted sovereign salt marsh, tide and submerged lands in trust in 1913 for the establishment, improvement, and conduct of a harbor and other utilities, structures, and appliances necessary or convenient for the promotion and accommodation of commerce and navigation. In 1961, the grant was amended to approve additional uses that were in the general statewide interest, including airports, highways, bridges, belt line railroads, public recreation, small boat harbors, restaurants, and landscaped areas.
