San Francisco, California
Bayfront Park will be the waterfront centerpiece for the Mission Bay development and open space system on San Francisco’s central waterfront. The 7.4 acre park will serve the region as part of the continuous Blue Greenway and Regional Baytrail around the Bay and will serve the blossoming population on San Francisco’s central waterfront comprised of new corporate headquarters, the University of California San Francisco’s Mission Bay campus, Hospital, and mixed uses. The park’s budget of $9 million includes shoreline restoration with a formal promenade and informal trail, overlooks and natural areas, a café and park facility including bike rental, urban plaza, open fi elds for play, and picnic areas. The park’s strong, simple design amplifi es the setting and creates a place for fl exible programming – from games, to performances and events. A major sculptural piece will animate the park’s south end and the terminus of 16th Street.
