Leland Avenue Entrance Improvements to start August 2017

San Francisco Recreation and Park Department (SFRPD) and San Francisco Public Utilities Commission (SFPUC) are partnering to improve McLaren Park Leland Avenue entrance with two projects:

SFPUC will build a new Rain Garden to capture, retain, filter, and absorb rain water in a series of terraced planters between the Visitacion Avenue and Leland Avenue. The rain garden, with native plants, interpretive signage along an accessible path, is estimated to retain 780,000 gallons of water annually from entering the sewer system and to recharge the ground water table. Details of the project are found at http://sfrecpark.org/project/leland-ave-rain-garden-puc-project/

SFPRD is completing the construction documents for a new Community Garden featuring an accessible terrace and new amenities: raised planter beds, garden plots, compost bins, picnic tables, potting tables and tool shed.
