YOUNGBLOOD COLMAN PARK

YOUNGBLOOD COLEMAN PARK

San Francisco, California

 

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

Groundworks Office is currently working with the Friends of Youngblood Coleman Park to secure needed funds to renovate the park in Bayview-Hunter’s Point. The clubhouse has become a city storage facility, the amphitheater sits empty, and safety concerns keep families away.  The proposed design enlivens the play areas adding color and graphics to brighten the park.  A graphic gateway will be added to the entrance of the existing hilltop slide, that memorialize the namesakes of the park who did on site in a tragic accident 30 years ago.  The existing swings will be refurbished and receive new play surfacing. A new play-structure will be added at the lower level with colorful play surfacing. The existing planting, which has suffered due to neglect, will be replaced with low water species to add seasonal color.
