2012 Parks Bond

Thank you San Francisco voters! The 2012 San Francisco Clean and Safe Neighborhood Park Bond passed overwhelmingly with more than 72 percent of the vote.

The work will focus on improving existing facilities that are worn out from years of use, provide urgently needed seismic improvements that will make recreation facilities and playground equipment safer for everyone, construct new waterfront parks and provide for shoreline restoration. The measure is an important component of the City’s Ten Year Capital Plan to provide residents in every neighborhood access to safe, clean and well-maintained parks and hiking trails, as well as seismically safe recreation centers and playground equipment.

Now that the measure has passed, 2012 bond projects are in the planning phase. Please visit the Recreation & Park Department's main 2012 bond page for the most recent information on the progress of the work.
