Cayuga Playground Renovation

Entrance to Cayuga Park

Locals in the know have enjoyed Cayuga Park’s unique landscape, location, and character for decades. As part of the 2008 Clean and Safe Neighborhood Parks Bond, the San Francisco community voted to allocate over $7 million to the revamp of this Outer Mission gem.

Park visitors and the surrounding community helped guide the transformation of Cayuga. In response to the needs of the community, we brought modern features to this old-charm park including a new clubhouse, upgraded children’s play areas, improved pathways, and new courts. We will also focus on maintaining the unique sculptures created by former park gardener Demetrio Braceros. Over time, these sculptures have become a central piece of Cayuga Park’s identity. Improvements to the irrigation system, landscaping, and the park’s basic infrastructure rounded-out the renovation to ensure that Cayuga’s charm will continue to please visitors for years and years to come.
