South Park


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 has been allocated $1 million. Construction is nearly completed and will open to the public March 7, 2017.

Project Scope

South Park is the oldest public park in San Francisco. Originally intended to be an English picturesque strolling park, it has fallen into disrepair and has been subject to ad-hoc improvements over the years. The Recreation and Park Department worked with the South Park Improvement Association, Fletcher Studio Landscape, park neighbors and community leaders to develop a master plan for the park's renovation. Improvements to the park include upgrades to the park's infrastructure, including: 

  • 24 mature trees and landscaping
  • Drainage
  • Irrigation
  • New paths
  • Site furnishings
  • Site lighting

The approved plan proposed 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.
