The renovation of Alice Chalmers Playground was part of Let’sPlaySF! Initiative, a partnership between the Recreation and Park Department and the San Francisco Parks Alliance that seeks to inspire creativity and play throughout the City.

Scope of Work

The scope of work included installation of new play equipment and perform site improvements to meet current building and safety codes. Additional improvements were made to restrooms and the main entrance to improve accessibility. 


This project is funded by the 2012 Clean and Safe Neighborhood Parks Bond – Let’sPlaySF! Initiative, totaling $3.1 million.

Thank you to the community and partners for making this project possible!
