Willie Woo Woo Wong Playground Improvement Project

Willie "Woo Woo" Wong PlaygroundDescription

Willie Woo Woo Wong Playground is located at 830 Sacramento Street between Waverly Place and Pagoda Place in Chinatown. Named for Chinese American USF basketball star Willie Woo Woo Wong, the park serves one of San Francisco’s densest and most culturally celebrated neighborhoods. The approximately half-acre park includes two sand-floor playgrounds, tennis and volleyball courts, and an existing clubhouse with rooftop basketball court, on a terraced hillside site. In addition, at the Western edge, Hangh Ah Alley is wholly within the park boundary.

Project Scope

The San Francisco Recreation and Park Department is undertaking a renovation of the Willie Woo Woo Wong Playground, as part of the capital improvement program funded by the 2012 Clean and Safe Neighborhood Parks Bond. The project will consist of the renovation and/or reconfiguration of park features including courts, children’s play areas, alleys, and associated amenities, and improved park access to meet current Americans with Disabilities Act and California Building Code standards.
