Locals in the know have enjoyed Cayuga Park's unique landscape, location, and character for decades. As part of the 2008 Clean and Safe Neighborhood Parks Bond, the San Francisco community voted to allocate over $7 million to the revamp of this Outer Mission gem.
Scope of Work
Park visitors and the surrounding community helped guide the transformation of Cayuga. In response to the needs of the community, we brought modern features to this old-charm park including a new clubhouse, upgraded children's play areas, improved pathways, and new courts.
We also focused on maintaining the unique sculptures created by former park gardener Demetrio Braceros. Over time, these sculptures have become a central piece of Cayuga Park's identity.
Improvements to the irrigation system, landscaping, and the park's basic infrastructure rounded-out the renovation to ensure that Cayuga's charm will continue to please visitors for years and years to come.
The San Francisco Recreation and Park Department currently manages more than 220 parks, playgrounds and open spaces throughout San Francisco, including two outside city limits—Sharp Park in Pacifica and Camp Mather in the High Sierras. The system includes full-complex recreation centers, swimming pools, golf courses, sports fields and numerous small-to-medium-sized clubhouses that offer a variety of sports- and arts-related recreation programs for people of all ages. Included in the Department’s responsibilities are Golden Gate Park, Coit Tower, the Marina Yacht Harbor, the San Francisco Zoo and Lake Merced.
In 2017, San Francisco became the first city in the nation where all residents have access to a park within a 10-minute walk, a direct result of the Department’s commitment to increasing and improving parkland in the city.Learn More
