Mission Playground is a focal point in the Mission District, as it features the only public outdoor pool in San Francisco. We are thrilled to soon be giving the community a newly renovated Mission Playground that will provide the full amenities this colorful neighborhood needs.
Having dug deep into the opinions and desires of local park users and community members, we are in the midst of a $7.5 million renovation that focuses on preserving and enhancing the diversity of park activities, aesthetic appeal, comfort and sociability, and park safety.
Clubhouse users will enjoy the increased natural lighting and general upgrades to the building’s infrastructure; children and families will love our newly upgraded play area and water play feature; and sports enthusiasts will appreciate the newly resurfaced athletic courts and synthetic turf fields. Everyone will benefit from improvements to the site’s pathways, lighting and irrigation systems, park accessibility, overall landscape improvements, the addition of more shade and seating, and the new artist designed fence panels enhancing the park entry. Upon completion, Mission Playground will rightfully take its place among the best of San Francisco’s parks.
A park ready for a makeover
Mission Playground, surrounded mostly by family housing, boasts nearly 100,000 sf of park space.
