Aqua Caliente Creek Restoration
Zone 6 – Between Paseo Padre Parkway and Tumbleweed Common, Fremont
The natural banks along Agua Caliente Creek, between Paseo Padre Parkway and Tumbleweed Common in Fremont, were in bad shape due to years of heavy erosion. In 2010, the creek bed and banks were stabilized, and the creek widened and realigned to wind through the nearby neighborhood. Most of the existing large native trees remained intact, and the area was landscaped with native plants, grasses, shrubs, and sycamore trees. Creek habitat was improved for local wildlife—especially for the endangered California red-legged frog.
