Francisco Park COVID-19 Project Update

Capital Project Update


In consultation with the City’s health officer and the City Administrator, on-going projects were evaluated, and a determination was made on each of our current construction projects based on criteria described within the most recent health order. Projects classified as “essential” are allowed to continue with construction under the shelter-in-place order, provided they follow a series of health and safety guidelines related to COVID-19. 

The non-essential projects are temporarily pausing on-site construction work through the duration of the Shelter in Place. 

This unique park project is a public-private partnership between the San Francisco Recreation and Park Department (RPD) and Francisco Park Conservancy (FPC). In 2014, the Recreation and Park Department acquired an underutilized reservoir site. Upon completion, the Francisco Park project will transform this abandoned reservoir site into a new public park, providing access to some of San Francisco’s most famous views of the bay alongside open spaces lined with native plants and trees.

An ADA-accessible pathway starting at Bay Street will wind its way up the park to a central lawn area, children’s playground, picnic area, restroom, and other amenities. The project also includes a fenced dog play area.

For more information, please contact Project Manager, Kelli Rudnick –, 415-581-2561 or visit: 

This site is monitored for security purposes. If you witness acts of vandalism or trespassing, please call 311.
