Recreation Center Renovation – Community Meeting Planned for June, Date to be Finalized Shortly!

Hi Everyone-

With the renovation of the Glen Canyon Park playground, tennis courts, and Elk Street entryway well underway, we are beginning to plan for the renovation of the Glen Canyon Park recreation center, funded by the 2012 Clean and Safe Neighborhood Parks Bond.

The Glen Canyon Park Recreation Center has major deferred maintenance needs, and does not offer flexible spaces for classes like many other recreation centers in the system.  The 2012 Parks Bond provides $12 Million in capital improvement funds to renovate this unique and well-loved building.  We look forward to improving the gymnasium and multi-purpose room, as well as constructing some new multi-purpose spaces.   This concept design was developed through the public community process in 2010 and 2011.

This project is funded through the 2012 Clean and Safe Neighborhood Parks General Obligation Bond. (Thank you San Francisco voters!

We are planning to hold our first community meeting in June.  We will be reviewing the plan for the recreation center that was developed during the 2010-2011 community process, discussing the ongoing needs and priorities for the recreation center, and gathering your feedback.  Check this blog and your inboxes for details.  If you are not already receiving emails from us regarding the Glen Canyon Park renovation, email to be added to it.  Our plan is to begin construction on the renovation in 2015.

Below is a list of alternative recreation centers to visit while Glen Canyon Park’s is closed:

• St. Mary’s Recreation Center (Murray St. and Justin Dr.)

• Upper Noe Recreation Center (299 Day St. at Sanchez St.)

I look forward to seeing you all at the community meeting!
