For years, a public right-of-way along Mesa Road, behind Toby’s Feed Barn and the Building Supply store, was overgrown with weeds and brush.  Many residents didn’t know that the right-of-way was even there.  Then the new toddler playground and public restrooms were installed across the road, and the need for a walkway out of traffic became urgent.

Early in 2007, West Marin Commons set to work with Marshall Livingston, who owns the Livery Stable building in Point Reyes Station, to create a common garden space there.

Little Yellow House and the Town Commons - No longer available for community use.

The owner of the property known as the Town Commons and the small building on the property know as the Little Yellow House is no longer available for community use.  The lease held by West Marin Commons for six years was terminated by the owners on November 30, 2017 and the property was vacated.
