PLEASURE POINT - Concrete terraces are nearing completion at Pleasure Point Park along East Cliff Drive. The project is one of the last projects funded by the Redevelopment Agency. The terraces mimic the geostrata of the ocean shelves of the Monterey Bay and incorporate stained concrete fossil replicas that came from the bay, including a 5-million-year-old whale fossil, according to Tom Ralston of Tom Ralston Concrete, who is constructing the project.
