Christopher Park was constructed 60 years ago and is now showing its age. FOCP was created to work with the SF Recreation and Park Dept. (SFRPD) to provide input on the renovated playground design funded by the 2012 Park Bond. The FOCP has identified park improvements beyond the scope of the Bond funding.
To initiate our fundraising campaign, we are creating the Where in the World is Christopher Park Festival? on Saturday, Sept. 23rd, 10–2pm at Christopher Park, 5210 Diamond Heights Blvd. The Festival will be the first of its kind to celebrate this hidden gem of San Francisco, building connections among the diverse organizations, projects, businesses and individuals that comprise our beautiful community. The free festival will offer resource booths, live music, children’s entertainment, bounce houses, a scavenger hunt, art activities and prizes.
