Hayes Valley Community Center Tour

From SPUR:

The nonprofit Trust for Public Land (TPL), partnered with San Francisco Recreation and Parks Department and WRNS Studio, recently updated a 1958 park located between San Francisco’s Hayes Valley and Western Addition neighborhoods. Reflecting TPL’s mission to create livable communities through land conservation, the new playground and clubhouse provide this dense area with a safe, welcoming facility that fosters an appreciation for nature, outdoor activity and social gathering. The project was the first of three sites in the city to participate in TPL’s Parks for People – San Francisco Initiative, supported by local corporations and private funders. Join WRNS Studio partners Bryan Shiles and Brian Milman as they lead us through the site and discuss their process for the project. $10. Limited to 25 people. SPUR members only.
