Lake Merced 2012 Bond Project
Scope of Work
Renovation of pathways on the North side of the lake, from Skyline Blvd & Harding Road, around to Lake Merced Blvd & Winston Drive. Improvements to include repaving, walls on the lake side of the pathway for erosion control, new plantings, outdoor fitness equipment and seating areas. Along John Muir Blvd at the southern portion of the lake (where the concrete bridge is) a new outdoor fitness area will be installed, along with related planting and seating. Many trees have been removed after a thorough tree assessment that concluded that these trees were in declining health and potential safety hazard. Rec- Park will replace all removed trees at a 2:1 ratio.
The 2012 Parks Bond allocated $2M to this project, $1M from a California Natural Resources Agency Grant secured by California Assemblymen Phil Ting, and additional funding from the Rec Park Forestry fund.
