Francisco Park Update

Construction on Francisco Park began in July and visitors to the site can already see major changes to the former Francisco Reservoir. In October, a massive water storage system was built, resembling huge orange cylinders before they were covered up.

The park is scheduled to be completed in 2020. The Francisco Park Conservancy has raised $22 million to fund the design and building of the park. The organization is raising additional funds for ongoing maintenance and for various amenities and improvements. You can see updates at
