Document Description
The San Francisco Recreation and Parks Department proposes to implement the Portsmouth Square Improvement Project, which would replace the existing park features with a redesigned public park that would include new playgrounds, exercise equipment, shade structures, wayfinding, signage, sidewalks, planters, terraces, ramps, and a new 7,500-square-foot community clubhouse facility. The project would also waterproof the roof of the parking garage located underneath the park and remove portions of the pedestrian bridge spanning Kearny Street that connects a 27-story hotel building (currently managed as a Hilton Hotel) with Portsmouth Square.
