City and county officials gathered last week to celebrate the grand re-opening of the Potrero Hill Playground, the newly renovated play area found in a corner of the Potrero Hill neighborhood park.
“We are thrilled to open the newly renovated and improved playground and play field that will serve as a community hub for the diverse families living on Potrero Hill,” said San Francisco Recreation and Park Department General Manager Phil Ginsburg.
Construction on the $1.2 million renovation project began last fall, and was funded by a revenue bond.
Local residents can now enjoy improvements to the park’s softball field, a 6,000-square-foot, fenced “tot lot” with play equipment, new picnic areas and updates to make the park more Americans with Disabilities Act compliant, officials said.
“I look forward to renovating and building many more new playgrounds in our district serving children and families in our vibrant neighborhoods,” said San Francisco County Supervisor Malia Cohen, who attended the playground’s ribbon-cutting ceremony last week.
