Memorial Event for Shores Crossing Guard

It was wonderful to have so many Redwood Shores residents here with the family and friends of Ray Robinson to celebrate his life!

This was a very special opportunity for so many people to gather for the dedication event, and we expect so many more will enjoy coming out to see memorial stone (near the corner of Bridge Parkway and Bowsprit Drive) and watch the new grove of trees grow grow around it. Thank you all for making this such a memorable neighborhood moment.


In July of 2017, Redwood Shores said goodbye to a local figure who brightened up the neighborhood with his presence. His friendly wave to everybody who came through the busy Bridge Parkway intersection helped keep the safety of our youngest residents in our minds while putting a good feeling in our hearts.

In tribute to the late Raymond Robinson, the “smiling crossing guard”, community members are invited to attend a memorial to Ray Robinson’s special personality and tributes to Redwood Shores.

Please meet on the corner of Bridge Parkway at 2:30pm on Saturday, April 21st, where Mr. Robinson served our community. The group will then make its way to the Redwood Shores Library to meet the Robinson family, who would really like to meet members of the community and have a little celebration of Ray’s life.

Thanks to all community members who donated for the memorial rock and plaque that will be placed on Bridge Parkway.

More information about Raymond Robinson can be found here.

Eggstravaganza 2018!

It’s time for the RSCA’s annual Eggstravaganza, held every year at Marlin Park in the center of Redwood Shores. Bring all your children and a basket for goodies to the park for the big Egg Hunt, where toddlers and young kids can seek out goodies hidden in the grass and playground. Also, the Easter Bunny will be there to lead off the Egg Hunt and later to pose for pictures with the boys and girls, so be sure to take along a camera as well!

The festivities begin at 1:00 PM on Saturday, March 24th at Marlin Park here in Redwood Shores.

Be sure to arrive early so that your child can line up in the right age category — the eggs disappear quickly, and the whistle begins exactly at 1:00, so be on time! (Please limit your children to 6 eggs each so that everyone can share.)

The Eggstravaganza is run by RSCA, and is a great place to sign up with our organization if you have not yet had a chance to do so. Please join in in making great events like this possible in Redwood Shores!

Light Up the Shores 2017

Dress up your home and yard with lights, Santa, reindeer, snowmen and win prizes! Winning homes will be featured in The PILOT and on the web. If you would like to submit your holiday decorations for consideration and publication in The PILOT, we are asking that you take a photo of your home, apartment, condominium or townhome, and submit it to our Board of Directors for their official “judging” process. Of course, it’s best that this be a “nighttime” photo so we can see how brilliantly the lights and decorations shine in the darkness.

Submission Deadline:
December 18

Each photo should be emailed to “” with the resident’s name and street address, including apartment or unit number if applicable.

Your photos must be submitted no later than the end of the day Monday, December 18th, as our elves will be judging all applicants the day afterwards. Sorry, no late applicants can be considered, as this is a lengthy process !

Redwood Shores Levee Cleanup 2017

At the end of each August, your Redwood Shores Community Association has sponsored our Annual Levee Cleanup. To benefit the environment, the community bonds together to help beautify the nearly seven miles (yes, 7 miles!) of levee surrounding the Shores. And we need all the help we can get to cover those seven miles..

Date: Saturday, August 26
Time: 8:00 am until noon (lunch at 11:30)
Place: Mariner Park, Redwood Shores, CA 94065
(click here for a MAP)
Starters: Coffee, juice and bagels served at 8:00 am
Lunch: Meals for all hands at 11:30am
Crews: Qualifies as 4-hours of Community Service

The Shores Levee Cleanup is a fun community event. Residents and admirers of our beautiful Shores are all invited to join us in this very worthy annual event to help keep this neighborhood and wetland area clean. Volunteers will be assembled into teams and assigned cleanup areas.  Kids and parents, adults and seniors are all welcome and encouraged to get involved.  Family work groups handle their areas at their own pace; all help to keep these bountiful nature trails debris-free.

This is a great opportunity for Redwood City residents (and their friends) to enjoy a beautiful summer morning while experiencing a variety of birds and other wildlife. Volunteer and enjoy the splendor of our seven miles of shoreline, including incredible views of the bay.

We hope you will join us again this year for this worthy cause and opportunity to give back to your community. Please wear good walking shoes and consider bringing gloves; all pickup tools and trash bags will be provided.  Take pride in enhancing this important Redwood City resource, and join us Saturday, August 26, starting at 8am.

  

Recology Systems Inc. provides the trash collection containers, and their assistance is gratefully acknowledged. Each year large amounts of trash are picked from the Redwood Shores Levee environment by our volunteers and removed by Recology Systems free of charge.  Every piece of trash that is eliminated is important!

For more information about this event, please contact Nina Boire at  .  

To acknowledge his faithful community service and leadership, this year’s cleanup is again dedicated to Pete Hughes. Pete organized this valued community initiative from the beginning and gained the continuing support of civic, business, and community leaders who support this public effort with their time and resources.
