Esprit ParkEsprit Park was built as a private, corporate park in 1982 and transferred to San Francisco’s Recreation and Park Department in 2001. Recent residential and commercial growth in and around the Dogpatch neighborhood has highlighted the importance of Esprit Park to become a resilient park space that serves the diverse needs of the neighborhood. Today many of the park amenities, including the planting and paving need improving.

A generous $5M grant from UCSF plus $2.7M in impact fees from Central Waterfront development projects jump-started the renovation of the park. The community input and project conceptual design process, which began in 2016, is wrapping up. Rec Park is asking for input from the community on the final park concept design.

Project Goals

  • Refresh the park after almost 40 years of use
  • Make the park more durable and resilient to withstand increased use
  • Retain the park’s natural design and feel
  • Make the park more usable for a wider variety of activities
  • Meet current codes and regulations
