South Park Renovation

The San Francisco Recreation and Park Department will begin construction this November at South Park, one of San Francisco’s oldest parks.  The $2.8 million renovation is funded by both the 2012 and 2008 Parks Bonds, as well as Eastern Neighborhoods Impact Fees and a generous donation from the South Park Improvement Association.

The design plan for the renovated South Park is a contemporary interpretation of the classic picturesque park featuring a pathway that meanders through the park’s trees and landscaped areas.  The design provides a variety of programmatic spaces, including a children’s play area, a large open meadow, and plazas designed for sitting and picnicking.

Please join us for a Ground Breaking Ceremony in the park on Tuesday, November 10, beginning at 3:30 PM.  Following the ceremony, join the South Park Improvement Association for an After Park Celebration at Caffe Centro, located across the street at 102 South Park Street.
