Local residents got some insight into the new Francisco Park, which will replace the long-unused Francisco Reservoir, at an early February community meeting held by the Francisco Park Conservancy and San Francisco Recreation and Parks.
Conceptual sketches showed several different layouts, all including lots of open space. Results of a design survey showed that the most desired feature was a soccer field, but the space is not appropriate for a full-sized soccer field; instead, there will be space for soccer practice. Other concerns were an emphasis on safety and security, the presence of native plants, and having a dog run.
