The Montgomery Freeway in the 1950s began the transition to the Interstate 5 highway system that opened new access to the dredged-in Tidelands that appear in the Rozelle aerial photo of 1956 as light-colored land south of the Navy's mothball fleet. In 2008, construction began on the $30 million Marina Gateway Plaza hotel and recreational project near Pepper Park and the new Arts and Recreation Center.
Pepper Park was built in 1988 on the Tidelands along the Sweetwater River.
