Francisco Park Construction Begins

A late 2020 completion is expected for the new Francisco Park, which has begun construction on its site between Larkin and Hyde Streets south of Bay Street. San Francisco’s newest park was made possible by the Francisco Park Conservancy’s successful campaign to raise more than $22 million. In August, work on the park began with the erection of fencing along the future park’s perimeter and the clearing away of brush.

The 3.29 acre site in Russian Hill is the former location of the Francisco Reservoir and has breathtaking views of the bay, Alcatraz, Angel Island, and Marin. San Francisco Recreation and Park acquired the site in 2014.
