In 2009, the City of Emeryville transformed the site of an old warehouse and parking lot into Doyle Hollis Park, a beautiful neighborhood park that has earned the Bay-Friendly Rated Landscape designation. Innovative features include the use of structural cells (often known by the brand name of Silva Cells) for the street tree plantings around the park. Structural cells increase the volume of uncompacted soil around a tree's roots, which helps produce larger, healthier trees.
