Update on Glen Canyon Playground Project Renovation: Nearing Completion and the Rec Center is Open Again

2008 Bond Project:

As of January 7th, the Recreation Center is open!  The Rec Center is open with a new heating system and ready to be enjoyed on the following dates and times:

Tuesday – Friday:             9 am – 9 pm

Saturday:                            9 am – 5 pm

Please note that the Rec Center can be entered near the Bosworth Street entrance to the park.  We have placed signs up around the park to point you in the right direction.

The remainder of the Glen Canyon Playground and Tennis Court Project is nearing completion.  The tennis courts are in place.  The play equipment is being installed.  Additionally, the new restroom on the side of the Rec Center will open when the new playground does.  In the next two weeks, you will see planting of the parks many new trees and shrubs begin.  The park is planned to be reopened in late February.  We are planning an opening celebration with Supervisor Scott Wiener, Glen Park Association and SF Rec and Park for late February.

Thank you all for your continued patience as we complete this project.

2012 Bond Renovation:

The Glen Canyon Park Recreation Center Renovation, funded by the 2012 Clean and Safe Neighborhood Parks Bond, is proceeding as planned.  We are continuing to work on the detailed design of the Recreation Center that includes the following elements: the overall renovation of the existing building, two new additions which will provide three multi-purpose spaces/classrooms, a large teaching kitchen, new restrooms, new recreational amenities, a clear main entry and central welcome desk, and related landscaping surrounding the building.  The public art element selection process is beginning and we will have options for the community to review and provide feedback on later this Spring.  Please continue to check the project blog for updates.
