Glen Canyon Park Improvement Plan

Wednesday, June 29th, 2011
After nine community workshops, eight focus group meetings with city agencies, officials, and community groups, and hundreds of correspondences with dedicated park-goers and experts, we have a Park Improvement Plan with associated costs and phasing. The intent of this plan is not only to guide short and long term improvements to the park, but also to serve as a fund-raising tool.
If you would like to see the details of the final draft Park Improvement Plan, and to learn more about the next steps for the project and how you can keep being involved, please visit http://sfrecpark.org/glenparkproject.aspx.  Under “Maps & Designs” you will find the drawings and presentations.  An image of the map is below (click on it to view a full-size version), and you can also view it in PDF format.

Groundbreaking commences at Mission Playground

Wednesday, May 11th, 2011

On May 11, District 8 Supervisor Scott Wiener joined Susan Hirsch of the City Fields Foundation, DPW director Ed Reisken, RPD General Manager Phil Ginsburg and kids from 826 Valencia in celebrating the start of a $7.5 million renovation at Mission Playground,  which will include remodeling the old and worn-down clubhouse for seismic safety and increased natural light, resurfacing the busy tennis and basketball courts, replanting a lawn, installing new children’s play equipment, improving park accessibility and safety, and replacing the old, asphalt soccer field with a state-of-the-art synthetic turf field.

“The importance of parks and open space cannot be underscored in densely populated neighborhoods like the Mission,” said Supervisor Wiener.  “Today is an important step forward as we continue to try to provide the world-class park amenities our residents need and desire.”

The project is expected to be completed in summer 2012.

restrooms are an important part of what makes our parks useable and enjoyable. Most of us know that in many of our city’s parks these amenities are either in poor condition or simply nonexistent. The 2008 Clean and Safe Neighborhood Parks Bond allocated $11.4 Million for restroom improvements and the construction of several new restrooms. A Restroom Task Force has been created to gather community input and determine locations for these improvements.

The Restroom Task Force issued their final report in early August, to be presented to the Recreation and Parks Commission in August or early September 2009.

On Wednesday, April 6 at the Capital Committee of the Recreation and Parks Commission, Marvin Yee released this update, which you can download here.

This report provides recommendations for the Restroom Program of the bond, and details how the allocated money might be spent. Each of the designated restroom projects will have an associated community planning process to discuss specific issues related to that
