Noe Valley Town Square

NOE VALLEY TOWN SQUARE IS NOW OPEN TO THE PUBLIC!

The proposal to establish Noe Valley Town Square evolved through more than four years of collaboration between RPD, the community group Residents for Noe Valley Town Square (RNVTS), Supervisor Scott Wiener’s office, and the San Francisco Parks Alliance (SFPA). Initially championed by RNVTS, the community group has actively advocated to convert the site into permanent public open space since 2010 and has conducted extensive community outreach over the past four years.

Previously owned by a nearby church, the Noe Valley Town Square property was purchased by RPD in June 2013. The site of a gas station from the 1930s to the early 1990s, the property underwent soil remediation and underground storage tank removal between 1991 and 1999. Since then the site has been used primarily for parking, and as a host space for the weekly Noe Valley Farmers Market.

Following acquisition of the site by RPD, the project entered a phase of conceptual design. A community involvement process served to gather input on the future park’s design and amenities. A proposed design concept was approved by the RPD Commission on April 17, 2014. As the design stage nears completion, crews are set to break ground in January 2016. January also marks the beginning of a 10-month site closure. During that time, the Noe Valley Farmers Market will be relocated to 24th street where it will continue to operate on Saturdays from 8 am to 1 pm.
