South Park was built in 1852, making it San Francisco’s oldest park. The park is approximately 34,000 square feet and has a children’s play area, a walkway, a natural lawn, landscaping, and related amenities. South Park is the oldest public park in San Francisco. Originally intended to be an English picturesque strolling park, it has fallen into disrepair and has been subject to ad-hoc improvements over the years. The Recreation and Park Department worked with the South Park Improvement Association, Fletcher Studio Landscape, park neighbors, and community leaders to develop a master plan for the park’s renovation. Improvements to the park include upgrades to the park’s infrastructure, including new paths, irrigation, drainage, site lighting, site furnishings, 24 mature trees, and landscaping.
