About the India Basin Waterfront Park Initiative 

Together the Bayview-Hunters Point (BVHP) community, A. Philip Randolph Institute, The Trust for Public Land, San Francisco Parks Alliance, and San Francisco Recreation and Parks endeavor to build a park that is both spectacular and crucial to the health of the city's southeast communities, which have been historically underserved. 

As the most significant park investment in San Francisco's history, India Basin Waterfront Park will transform three dilapidated and underperforming spaces at 700 Innes, 900 Innes, and India Basin Shoreline Park into a contiguous 1.7-mile, 64-acre network of open space in the basin. 

Guided by a community-led vision rooted in equitable development, this initiative will close a critical gap in the San Francisco Bay Trail, enabling safe and healthy waterfront access and serve as a cultural anchor for community-driven recreation and programming opportunities.
