11th & Natoma Park Project

Background

Over 100,000 new households are projected to move into San Francisco by 2040,Proposed eleventh and Natoma new park aerial view of existing buildings with much of the coming growth to be concentrated in SoMa. This dense, urban area is expected to see significant population growth northwest of the project site with the proposed Hub initiative within the Market & Octavia Plan. District 6, especially the southwest end of the district, is especially limited in parks and open space for its residents. To provide more open space in the neighborhood, Rec & Park has acquired a half-acre property on 11th Street, between Natoma Street and Minna Street, to develop a new park.

Scope of Work

The full scope of this new half-acre park will be determined through the ongoing community engagement during the planning phase. The design will take into consideration park needs within the rapidly growing neighborhood and will consider any other new open spaces being developed by public and private developers in the area. Typical parks of this scale may include play features, nature exploration, courts, and other passive and active uses.
