Together with community members who shaped the historic project from its conception, San Francisco officials broke ground last month on the future India Basin Waterfront Park.
The groundbreaking ceremony marks the beginning of construction of the future park’s structures, including rehabilitation of the Historic Shipwright’s Cottage, a City Landmark; a food pavilion and shop building; two new piers; a floating dock, gangway and historic marine rails.
Community members who have undergone construction training through the project’s workforce development program will be among the professionals building the heart of the park at 900 Innes Avenue.
The once-in-a-generation environmental justice project is a partnership between the Bayview-Hunters Point community, the San Francisco Recreation and Park Department, A. Philip Randolph Institute- San Francisco APRI SF, San Francisco Parks Alliance, and Trust for Public Land. A special thanks to District 10 Supervisor Shamann Walton 華頌善, City Attorney David Chiu, California State Parks, The Port of San Francisco, Swinerton, and everyone who came out to mark this milestone!
