Glen Canyon Park Renovation Project Underway!

Hi folks,

As you might have noticed, starting last week, the renovation project is underway!  The project is anticapated to be completed in November of 2013, assuming no additional delays.

As a reminder, major improvements include: a new children’s play area that will be almost twice as large as the old play area, a new accessible restroom, new tennis courts, improved park paths, an improved Elk Street entry and drop-off area, 163 new trees and additional new landscaping, and new heating in the recreation center.

So far, work that has occured included portions of the tree removal and removal of the existing tennis courts.  The construction fencing is in place.  The contractor will be supplying a porta potty for use shortly to be located near the bosworth street entrance.

Glen Canyon Park’s recreation center is also closed at this time so that a new heating system can be installed.  The recreation center will reopen as soon as possible.  Many parts of the park will remain open throughout the renovation.

While the project is underway, we want to remind you of the other alternative children’s play areas and tennis courts nearby that you may use during Glen Canyon Park’s renovation.  For your convenience, we are including a list of possible nearby locations.

For updates on the renovation, please visit our blog, at http://sfrecpark.org/glenParkProject.aspx.  You can also contact me with any question or concerns at (415) 575-5601 or karen.mauney-brodek@sfgov.org<mailto:karen.mauney-brodek@sfgov.org>.

Thanks!

Karen
