Completed and Opened to the Public on September 15, 2016.
The purpose of the project was to replace a deteriorated log stair trail from Belgrave Avenue to the top of Tank Hill. The new box steps, were constructed from Douglas Fir timbers and compacted native soil.
The Tank Hill Trail Improvement Project was selected by the Community Opportunity Fund Selection Committee to receive funding as part of Round 4 of the Community Opportunity Fund (COF) Program of the 2012 Clean and Safe Neighborhood Parks Bond. Additionally, community members donated approximately $4,000 to the construction project.
The San Francisco Recreation and Park Department currently manages more than 220 parks, playgrounds and open spaces throughout San Francisco, including two outside city limits—Sharp Park in Pacifica and Camp Mather in the High Sierras. The system includes full-complex recreation centers, swimming pools, golf courses, sports fields and numerous small-to-medium-sized clubhouses that offer a variety of sports- and arts-related recreation programs for people of all ages. Included in the Department’s responsibilities are Golden Gate Park, Coit Tower, the Marina Yacht Harbor, the San Francisco Zoo and Lake Merced.
In 2017, San Francisco became the first city in the nation where all residents have access to a park within a 10-minute walk, a direct result of the Department’s commitment to increasing and improving parkland in the city.Learn More
