Raymond Kimbell Playground Improvement Project


Raymond Kimbell offers a breath of fresh air to its very urban setting. For many locals, this park has become a central piece of the community. In 2008, park supporters voted to give Raymond Kimbell a $3.3 million renovation through the 2008 Clean and Safe Neighborhood Parks bond in an effort to ensure that their park continues to serve San Francisco for years to come.

Raymond Kimbell will offer an upgraded play area, improved landscape, and safer infrastructure.

We are excited to be working with the community in making Raymond Kimbell a better place to play!


Located at the corner of Geary Boulevard and Steiner Street, Raymond Kimbell serves a very urban part of San Francisco. The park offers a clubhouse, childrens play area, three baseball fields with bleacher seating, and open green areas for visitors. Over the years, many of these facilities have become unusable, unsafe, and in need of repair. Our goal is to restore and improve Raymond Kimbell Playground for the benefit of its loyal community.
