Sunset Rec Center

The New Sunset Rec Center

Residents of the Sunset District have enjoyed Sunset Recreation Center since 1940, making it a main hub of activity for kids in the outer Sunset. In response to community needs, the Recreation and Park Department is dedicating nearly $14 million of the 2008 Clean and Safe Neighborhood Parks Bond to ensure this local treasure will continue to promote good health and community togetherness through its recreational facilities. The renovation of Sunset Recreation Center is scheduled to be completed in summer 2012.
