The renovation of the children’s play area at Herz Playground within John McLaren Park is part of the Let’sPlaySF! Initiative, a partnership between the Recreation and Park Department and the San Francisco Parks Alliance that seeks to inspire creativity and play throughout the City. In the coming years, 13 playgrounds prioritized for improvement by a citizen task force will be re-imagined and redesigned for this and future generations of San Francisco’s children.

The proposed project includes a complete renovation of the toddler and school aged children’s play areas at Herz Playground. The new play areas will have all new play equipment and surfacing. Additional site improvements will include new benches, picnic tables, pathways, fencing and landscaping. Additionally, the restrooms at Herz Clubhouse will be brought into current code compliance and receive cosmetic upgrades.
