Completed and opened to the public in March 2017!
South Park is located at 64 South Park Avenue. The park is approximately 34,000 square feet and has a children's play area, a walkway, natural lawn, landscaping, and related amenities. The project was allocated $1 million.
South Park is the oldest public park in San Francisco. Originally intended to be an English picturesque strolling park, it had fallen into disrepair and had been subject to ad-hoc improvements over the years. The Recreation and Park Department worked with the South Park Improvement Association, Fletcher Studio Landscape Architects, park neighbors and community leaders to develop a master plan for the park's renovation. Improvements to the park included upgrades to the park's infrastructure, including:
- Adding 24 mature trees and landscaping
- New paths
- Site furnishings
- Site lighting
The site now features a variety of different programmatic spaces, including a children's play area, a large open meadow, plazas of varying scales, and a variety of areas designed for sitting and/or picnicking.
