The Francisco Park Conservancy reports work continues apace on the transformation of the former reservoir at the corner of Hyde and Bay Streets into the new 4.25-acre Francisco Park. The group, which raised $24 million to create the park, said that the rainwater catchment system has been installed beneath the main lawn, and as of the beginning of the new year grading work was taking place for the ADA paths, and restrooms have their foundations.

“This time next year,” the Conservancy reported, “the park’s native plants will be taking root, fauna will be nesting, and all will be able to enjoy the wonderful new San Francisco park!”
