Sneak peak of Dolores Park renovations

News

SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — One of San Francisco’s most popular parks is halfway through a $21 million overhaul. The northern half of Dolores Park has been fenced off since construction began more than a year ago. Those fences are coming down next week.

San Francisco Parks and Recreation employees are still hammering out the final details for the north side renovation of the park.

They are currently installing WiFi equipment and spraying an anti graffiti coating on concrete surfaces,

Workers have installed new turf at the park. The new turf has drainage and irrigation to keep mud pits from forming.

The biggest change might be the new restrooms that were installed. There used to be just four in the park. There will now be 27.

About half of those will be ready by when the northern part of the park reopens on Thursday.

The city has also upped its trash and recycling capability in the park by 36 percent.
