Say hello to the future
Francisco Park

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. Now, fundraising to build the park is the greatest priority.

We just received a $6 million matching gift challenge from a prominent San Francisco family who wishes to remain anonymous but wants to help ensure Francisco Park is built. If we meet this challenge before it expires at the end of 2018, we will reach our fundraising goal and construction can begin. Will you help us?

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.
