This project is funded through the 2008 Clean and Safe Neighborhood Parks General Obligation Bond, specifically from the Community Opportunity Fund (COF) – a program that allows residents, neighborhood groups, and park advocates like San Francisco Lawn Bowling Club to initiate capital improvements by matching public funding with private gifts, and volunteer sweat equity.

• February/March 2014 – survey, trenching, formwork
