Say hello to the future
Located south of Bay Street between Larkin and Hyde Streets, the new Francisco Park will turn more than four acres of unused property into an expansive green space for everyone to enjoy. The San Francisco Recreation and Park Commission approved the conceptual design plan for the new Francisco Park in March of 2018. After raising more $22 million in contributions and pledges towards the Francisco Park project, plans for site preparation and construction will begin in 2019.
Announcement: Francisco Park will be presenting at the San Francisco Arts Commission’s Civic Design Review Committee meeting on Monday, June 17, 2019 in the War Memorial Building, Room 125 (401 Van Ness Avenue). The meeting runs from 2:30 – 6 p.m. and the Francisco Park presentation will likely occur at 4 p.m. or later. The agenda will be posted 72 hours in advance of the meeting here. The public is welcome to attend and provide comment.
The City of San Francisco has given the community a unique opportunity to transform the unused Francisco Reservoir site into a brand new public park overlooking some of the most famous scenery in the world. Watch this short video to learn the history, latest news, and how you can get involved.
Approved Conceptual Design
After extensive community outreach, we arrived on a conceptual design which incorporates native plants and trees, as well as an ADA-accessible pathway linking features including a central green lawn, children’s playground, fenced dog-run, community garden, and view terraces.
We are grateful to these generous community members who have taken a leadership role in supporting the new Francisco Park.

The new Francisco Park would not be possible without champions from city government, non-profit organizations, and the community, as well as our board members and design team.
