Event Details

Dolores Park is getting renovated and you’re invited to the official Rec and Park groundbreak ceremony with park advocates, Dolores Park Works, Supervisor Scott Wiener, San Francisco Recreation and Park Dept GM Phil Ginsburg.

Groundbreaking Schedule

  • 9 am – The Dolores Park Volunteers and DPWorks will rake hipster hill one last time before the dust flies. This will be a moment to thank the neighbors, merchants, friends and supporters of Dolores. Coffee and pastry from Dolores Park Cafe.
  • 10 am – Welcome Remarks and Groundbreaking Ceremony.

After many long hours, meetings, letters and picked up trash pick-up days, it’s time to pause, reflect and celebrate a new beginning for Dolores Park, so come on out before the fence goes up on Saturday, March 1, 2014.

For nearly a century San Franciscans have enjoyed the 13.7-acres of recreational opportunities provided by Mission Dolores Park. To help keep up with the use of the park and make much-needed infrastructure improvements, San Francisco voters approved the 2008 Clean and Safe Neighborhood Parks Bond, a $185 million general obligation bond that includes bond funding to improve Mission Dolores Park. The South-end (tennis courts to the Clubhouse) will be the half of a two-phase construction process.

Work has also begun to turn a once Lutheran Church (“Castle on the Park”) at 601 Dolores Street into the Children’s Day School Middle School Campus. All work should be completed by mid-February 2015 with the first classes in the building starting September 2015.
