Jackson Playground's open field is open. All other amenities are currently CLOSED due to COVID-19
For the latest update that includes park and program closures, click here.
In accordance with the most recent health order from the San Francisco Department of Public Health, playgrounds, adult fitness areas, picnics areas, enclosed dog parks, archery ranges and sport courts, including all basketball, tennis and pickleball courts are now closed, effective as of Wednesday, April 1 at midnight. In addition, activities in which equipment is shared, such as frisbee or soccer, are prohibited with anyone outside your household.
During these unprecedented times, San Francisco parks, trails and open spaces remain open to allow people to go outside and get some fresh air when needed. Those not in vulnerable groups can continue to spend time outdoors while complying with the social distancing recommendations of staying at least 6 feet apart unless you share a household. It is OK to go outside to go for a walk, run, ride a bike, and hike alone or with someone in your household at your local park. If you drive your car, it's too far.
The health and safety of our park users is our top priority. We are advising park visitors to continue to follow DPH guidance around social distancing and adhere to the "Shelter in Place" order to help reduce the spread of COVID-19.
Friends of Jackson Park believe open space strengthens communities.
We are concerned about the availability of green space and parkland to accommodate our changing community.
Our objective is to ensure that Jackson Park remains an asset for everyone who lives here.
After years of community meetings and workshops with residents, we have crafted a master plan to redevelop Jackson Park to meet the needs of our rapidly growing neighborhood.
Our short-term goal: To realize our plan, we are concentrating on identifying funding sources and support from our community
Our long-term goal: To renovate the whole park, including the historic clubhouse to capture open space and leverage its untapped potential for the community.
The redevelopment plans offer:
600% increase of public open space
125% increase in size of playground area
225% increase of community garden space
