About Us

In response to PG&E’s plans to build a second power plant in our neighborhood, the Innes Avenue Coalition was formed in November, 1994. Then two-years later in 1996, The Friends of India Basin came together as a park stewardship organization for the Shoreline Park. By 2000, the groups merged to form the India Basin Neighborhood Association. Since then we have fought to keep what is great about India Basin, the natural beauty and open space.

The history of India Basin is a curious combination of industry and open space, business and pleasure. The name India Basin first appeared on a map in 1868, but theories as to its origin remain murky. The Most Unexceptional guess is that India Basin is named for the ships from the India Rice Mill Company, which docked there in the 19th century. A more creative explanation has it that it was so named because water from nearby springs would stay fresh until a ship reached India.
