17th and Folsom Street (New Park)

Background

The 17th and Folsom Streets’ Park project was on hold for a year to allow for coordination with the proposed work by SFPUC for 17th & Folsom Sewer improvements that included a wet weather storage basin at the site of the future park. In early 2014, SFPUC decided not to proceed with the proposed sewer improvements work after evaluation of the project and technical performance of the storage basin.

The project is moving forward again with funding in place and a new assigned project manager.

The anticipated revised schedule is as follows:
Completion of contract documents: July 2015
Bid & Award of Construction Contract: Summer 2015
Start of Construction: Summer 2016
Park Opening: Winter 2016

17th& Folsom Park Revised Site Plan 063015

Since January 2010, the City has been working with the community to develop a park on a portion of a parking lot at the corner of 17th and Folsom Streets. Concept designs were developed with the community and submitted for a State grant in 2010.

We’re excited to announce that we have received this grant and have funded the development of this site! Staff from the Recreation and Park Department, Planning Department, DPW, the PUC, and our community partner, PODER, worked with the community over the past 2 years to complete the design of the Park. We look forward to working with the community to build this park!
