The 磨街码头 was built in 1957 by the National Rice Mills for River transport of agricultural products. After Rice Mill operations ceased, the Pier fell into disrepair. In 2010 partnerships with the Unger and Ramos Families and Fulcrum Property enabled the city to acquire land to create River Walk Park. 2013年5月, the City entered into a contract with GHD for design of the rehabilitation project and securing the Central Valley Flood and Fish and Wildlife Permits. 丰富多彩的, kinetic public art piece called “西” was unveiled at the end of the recently refurbished 磨街码头 in West Sacramento’s Bridge District Monday evening, 10月29日, 2018. 西 was created and fabricated by artist Janet Zweig. It features hollow letters, 四英尺高, which rotate and light up at night, creating an amazing spectacle that can been seen from across the river in Sacramento and from travelers on highway 50 crossing overhead.
