The new "austere look" for the entrance to the Berkeley Municipal Fishing Pier.

Until recently, the Berkeley Pier included an observation deck and shelter, but this feature was removed due to alleged (but never fully documented) structural safety issues. Unfortunately the pilings that supported the deck were sawn off at the waterline, insuring that any replacement structure will be extremely expensive.

The observation deck had always been an extremely popular destination for Marina visitors.
