Mayor wants to see a new park in eastern neighborhoods

Mayor Gavin Newsom wants to create a new park in the eastern neighborhoods of San Francisco such as Bayview, his administration said Friday. The park, which would be modeled on Chicago’s Millennium Park, would be open space as well as a cultural destination to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Great Quake in San Francisco, said Marshall Foster, director of City Greening. Foster said the park would likely be more than an acre, but it is not clear exactly where it will be placed. Foster said the Mayor wanted to place it in the eastern neighborhoods because the area lacked parks.

“Since the eastern neighborhoods are where most of San Francisco’s development will be, we wanted to be proactive and make the investment ahead of time,” Foster said.
