Neptune Beach
Beach resort near Central Ave & Webster St in Alameda, created in 1916 on the site of an earlier large beach resort. The entrance featured a 100-foot Moorish tower. Features included a dancing pavilion, a stadium seating 8,000, a boardwalk lit by electricity, amusement park rides and concessions, and two large saltwater swimming pools. The park was a training site for many famous boxers. Ideally located for streetcar access, the park suffered when people began to use the automobile as their primary transport for recreation. It went bankrupt in 1939, and the military purchased the land in 1942. The area is now known as Crown Memorial State Beach (although the present beach is much smaller than the wide beaches that existed before landfill changed the pattern of tidal flows and currents).
