Franklin Square Improvement Project

Thanks to the Friends of Franklin Square who lobbied successfully to install new adult exercise equipment including two-level parallel horizontal bars, parallel bars, horizontal ladder and light fixtures on fence poles to illuminate the western area of the park.

The project received $120,000 Eastern Neighborhood Benefit Funds and a $16,000 General Fund for the exercise equipment costs. Lighting is funded by an add-back allocated from the General Fund, secured by Supervisor Malia Cohen’s Office at $25,000. The project may receive showplace Square/Potrero Open Space funding.

Planned Improvements

Lighting & Equipment

The project received $120,000 Eastern Neighborhood Benefit Funds for the improvement costs which includes a two-level parallel horizontal bar, parallel bars, horizontal ladder.

Because of little illumination along the western area of the park, the community requested several lights along this edge. With $25,000 funded by the Supervisor’s Office, several lamp fixtures will be attached to the athletic field fence poles illuminating the west path and patch of green.

Field Replacement

The field was replaced in early 2017 and is now open to the public.

Schedule

Construction for this project will begin in summer 2018.
