Acquisitions – Future Park Sites


In order to meet the growing need for open space in San Francisco, RPD continues to acquire new parks. With the help of the voter-approved Proposition C: the Open Space Fund, RPD has added new park land over the past decade. Park acquisitions can be accomplished in several ways: 1) through the Open Space Acquisition Fund, 2) with Development Impact fees paid by new developments, 3) private donation, and more. Keep up to date with new park acquisitions and future park sites, and find out how RPD prioritizes and selects sites for acquisition through the tabs below.
