The EcoCenter at Heron's Head Park

The EcoCenter at Heron’s Head Park is a unique treasure in the Bayview Hunter’s Point Community. It is a space for environmental education, workshops, assembly and place where youth, families and community can gather and engage with nature. The EcoCenter facility was designed to be a classroom and serve as a model of green building technology. It is an off-the-grid facility with its own solar energy system including a living roof, sustainable building materials, on-site wastewater treatment and rainwater harvesting and resuse systems. In July of 2013, the EcoCenter was certified by the U.S. Green Building Council and Green Building Certification Institute with LEED PLATINUM-Leader in Energy and Environmental Design.

The EcoCenter was designed by Toby Long Design and was a collaborative project between Literacy for Environmental Justice (LEJ) the Port of San Francisco, the San Francisco Department of the Environment and the California Coastal Conservancy for the benefit and enjoyment of the Bayview Hunter’s Point Community and beyond.

The Park and Facility is owned and maintained by the Port of San Francisco and operated by the San Francisco Recreation and Park Department.
