Merced Heights Project Update and More Funding!

Hi Everyone,

An update on Merced Heights, thanks to Supervisor Safai, we received an additional $900,000 in funding for the Let’s Play SF! – Merced Heights Playground Project! This funding will be used for upgrading the courts, fencing and lighting at the site.

We have also wrapped up our design documents are are now preparing this project for bidding. We are still on track to start construction in early 2019 and look forward to breaking ground soon!

Finally, we will have a new Project Manager and point of contact for this project as it moves into bidding and construction, Paulina Araica. Paulina has been with the Rec and Park Department for 17 years and has recently completed the In Chan Kajaal Park on 17th and Folsom. Reem will be working closely with Paulina to ensure a smooth transition. Please email Paulina with any questions or concerns at

Thank you!
