During the past year, our entire department—gardeners, laborers, recreation staff, managers, and administration— along with some very important partners and park advocates worked to develop a meaningful and lasting plan that provides a clear vision for our park system and a clear set of values to guide us as we do our work. Our 2016-2020 Strategic Plan sets forth our core strategies and objectives, and lays out some specific initiatives for us to achieve—things like acquiring new park land; expanding youth programs that emphasize movement and wellness; caring for our natural resources; and growing apprentice and workforce development programs that provide job training and career pathways. If we follow the plan, I am confident we will inspire a more livable city for all and ensure that San Francisco’s parks connect us all to play, nature and each other for years to come.
