Boeddeker Park

san francisco, ca

Note: Our Director designed this playground as a Project Associate at The Trust for Public Land.

This project was part of a 3 park, $15 million initiative led by The Trust for Public Land and funded by major donations from Banana Republic, Levi Strauss Foundation, McKesson, Pacific Gas and Electric Company and Wells Fargo Foundation.

Boeddeker Park is 1 acre, the largest public open space in the Tenderloin, the densest and poorest neighborhood in San Francisco. It was also completely demolished and rebuilt, and includes a new clubhouse by WRNS Studios, play area for tots and school age kids, large lawn, full basketball court, outdoor fitness equipment, community garden areas and rain gardens for stormwater management.


This project was a partnership with The Trust for Public Land and WRNS Studio.


Construction was complete in 2013.


This project was featured by Design Museum San Francisco in their Extraordinary Playscapes Exhibit.
