San Francisco Lawn Bowling Green 1 was renovated to include a concrete edge/gutter, an accessible pathway around the green and a new gate and fence on north and south sides. The green closed through summer 2014.
This project is funded through the 2008 Clean and Safe Neighborhood Parks General Obligation Bond, specifically from the Community Opportunity Fund (COF) - a program that allows residents, neighborhood groups, and park advocates like San Francisco Lawn Bowling Club (SFLBC) to initiate capital improvements by matching public funding with private gifts, and volunteer sweat equity.
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
