Today there is a remnant of the original creek, located in an open space parcel at the corner of Bridgeway and Nevada Street. It is a resource cherished by some in the local community, and has received stewardship from the school in the form of native plant restoration efforts by the middle school students and their teachers. Over the years the City has made efforts to clear the blackberry and other nuisance non-native plants that can take over the parcel, which is owned by The Willows Homeowners Association (HOA) and maintained by the City.
The open channel of Willow Creek through this property contains water throughout the year and sustains a grove of old willow trees that provides habitat for animals and people alike. While appreciated by a few that know about it, this area often becomes overgrown with weeds and invaded by transient people such that it is a problem to be managed instead of a community asset. Willow Creek is not well known to the Sausalito community. Yet.
