West Sunset Playground is located on 39th Avenue and Ortega in San Francisco.
It is a centrally located and heavily used park.
In February 2008 San Francisco voters approved Measure A: The Clean and Safe Neighborhood Parks Bond. Of that $185 million bond, $117.4 million was allocated to San Francisco neighborhood parks for playground safety, repair and replacement, seismic work, landscaping, better disability access, and to modernize and improve aging parks. West Sunset Playground was not one of the twelve city neighborhood parks covered by this Bond.
Seeing that it is in such disrepair and not slated to receive Bond money, Friends of West Sunset Playground, a non-profit, community based organization formed. Our mission is to redesign and rebuild West Sunset Playground to be maintained, sustained and integrated with the neighborhood, while continuing to provide programs to best serve the community.
