Welcome to the India Basin Neighborhood Association Web Page

America True and India Basin Neighborhood Association invite neighborhood youth to take a free ride on a kayak, climb a wall, enjoy BBQ. Thanks to support from Kayaks Unlimited, Recology, the Bay View Boat Club, and the Recreation and Parks Department we’re looking forward to a great day on the Bay.

While you’re in the website — the next meeting is September 29 due to the October 6 event.


Our next meeting will take place on September 29 because of the October 6 event.

We (usually) meet on the first Saturday of each month at 9:00 am at the Storehouse on Galvez Ave right next to the entrance of the old Navy shipyard. Join us for a cup of coffee and help change the world… or at least the block.

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.
