Park Renovation 2016

SF-rec-and-park-plan-for-Alamo-Square-2013Alamo Square Park will undergo a $4.3 million renovation to update the irrigation system, build an ADA-accessible restroom, and landscape the entirety of the park. The outcome of the project will result in water savings through improved irrigation design, the installation of “smart” controllers, and the planting of lawn alternatives, including no-mow grasses that are native to the western U.S. An estimated 3,260,000 gallons of water per year (37%) is expected in water savings after completion. The project is funded by both the 2008 and 2012 Clean & Safe Neighborhood Parks Bonds, as well as a $1.6 million grant from the SF Public Utilities Commission. A contract will be awarded in February with construction anticipated to begin on May 10, 2016 – at which time, the entirety of the park will close. The project is expected to take seven months with an estimated completion in winter 2016-2017.
