Herz Recreation Center Project

Herz Gym Rendering of potential new space at Hahn and Visitacion Ave

The Recreation and Park Department is partnering with the HOPE SF Team, including Mercy Housing and Related CA, to construct a new recreation center/gymnasium at Herz Playground, a site within John McLaren Park.The new recreation center would be designed and built to fit cohesively within the existing park landscape and “the Hub,” a new community center campus with childcare services and recreational facilities. The vision for the overall Hub is to be an inclusive, safe, friendly, family and youth focused place for neighborhood residents and visitors.

The recreation center will feature an indoor basketball court with bleachers, a multi-purpose room, an exercise room, restrooms and associated staff spaces such as offices.

This facility would provide a much needed recreation center on the south side of San Francisco, and the goal is to create a clean, safe, warm and modern resource for all.
