17th and Folsom Proposed Park Community Meeting

From SF Planning:

Since January 2010, the City has been working with the community to develop a park on a portion of the parking lot at the corner of 17th and Folsom streets. Concept designs were developed with the community and submitted for a State grant in 2010.

The Planning Department and the San Francisco Recreation and Park Department are excited to announce that we have received this grant and have funded the development of this site! We will be hosting an upcoming community meeting on March 11th 2012 to update you on the status of the project. At this meeting, staff wants to finalize the concept design and begin work on the details of the design.

Stop by to get an update on the process, help us further design the park and test out some of the exercise equipment!
