Ten million dollars. Three hundred acres of park land.
If you want to help answer the $10 million question for McLaren Park, your chance is coming up on Saturday, Oct. 1. SF Recreation and Parks Department (RPD) will be hosting a workshop to get public input on how to prioritize this investment for San Francisco’s second-largest park, nestled in the southeast corner of the city.
We know how amazing the Mansell Street improvements will be to open up park space for biking, establishing a beautiful bicycle and pedestrian path that is fully separated from fast-moving cars. The City announced earlier this month that this transformation will be completed in October, and we look forward to celebrating with you once we have the exact opening date.
The excitement doesn’t stop there, though. This upcoming workshop is the first for the McLaren Park Improvement Project to determine priorities for spending the investment that San Francisco voters made in 2012 by approving the Parks Bond, a measure that passed with a 72 percent approval rate.
When it comes to investing in our parks and opening up space where families can enjoy biking together, we’re glad to see improvements throughout all of San Francisco. Help support this work by attending the workshop and learn more about the project at RPD’s website here.
