Glen Canyon Park, a 66-acre public recreation area that features some of San Francisco’s most untouched natural landscapes, is poised to undergo a facelift later this year.

As part of a $3.7 million construction project that was approved by the Recreation and Park Department’s capital committee Wednesday, the site is poised to receive landscaping improvements to make the park’s walking trails more accessible to visitors. The recreation center, tennis courts and children’s play area located in the park are also scheduled to benefit from extensive upgrades, according to Rec and Park spokeswoman Connie Chan.

The full Recreation and Park Commission will vote on the $3.7 million construction contract at its meeting Aug. 16. If approved, work is tentatively scheduled to begin in October and end in the fall of 2013, Chan said.

Funding for the project, which also includes $2.1 million for design and conceptual plan costs, will come from the 2008 Clean and Safe Neighborhood Parks Bond, a $185 million voter-backed initiative to improve The City’s open spaces.
