The Telegraph Hill Rock Slope Improvement project consisted of the stabilization of rock slopes located southeast and northwest of the centerline of Lombard Street (paper street) which are under City and private ownership.
The rock slope improvements include rock scaling or removal of loose rock and vegetation, partial shotcrete facing, installation of rock bolts and wire mesh netting on the exposed rock face, and replacement and repairs to the existing catchment fence located on Lombard and Winthrop Streets.
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
