This dog park was one of two new park spaces in the South of Market neighborhood to open as part of a renovation project in 2014, including a 72,000 sq. ft. skate park and the 7,000 sq. ft. dog park--- creating much needed park space in one of the most population-dense areas of the city. The parks, which are managed and maintained by Rec and Park, were part of a larger multi-agency improvement project on land previously occupied by the former Central Freeway structure. The project was completed in partnership with the Office of Economic and Workforce Development, the Board of Supervisors, DPW, Real Estate, Arts Commission, Caltrans, SFMTA and the CTA (County Transportation Agency).
