GLEN CANYON Recreation Center Update: Construction Underway

Glen Canyon Rec Center Ceiling

Hi Everyone,

Just wanted to provide you with a brief update on the Glen Canyon Recreation Center Project. As you may know, we are well underway with the renovation of the Recreation Center, which was overwhelmingly approved by San Francisco voters in the 2012 Clean and Safe Neighborhood Parks Bond (see below info and links for more information/background).

The construction is proceeding, as you can see in the attached photo of the current interior ceiling appearance of the auditorium. I bet you didn’t know there were such pretty trusses under that old drop ceiling! These will be visible after the renovation, which I think will be great.

Recreation Center Renovation Ongoing/ What to Expect in the Next Few Months:

During renovation of the recreation center the ballfields, playground, and tennis courts are still all open. We have also provided two ADA accessible Porta-Potties available onsite seven days a week while the building is closed for renovation.

Over the next few months a lot of the work will continue inside the building, so you won’t see a lot going on from the outside. You will see portions of the structure removed, but we are keeping the main structures – the gym, auditorium, and the office wing – of the building. A lot is happening inside.

I am working to renovate the Sussex street steps with the trails program, and I will be providing an update on that as soon as I can.

In this project, one tree adjacent to the building has been identified for removal due to its health, structural and safety concerns. At this time, this is the only tree identified for removal and replacement. Additionally, this renovation project will include the planting of thirty-five new trees around the building.

We continue to work to minimize the construction impact on the neighbors to the greatest extent we can. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.

Thank you again for your patience and time.
