Boeddeker Park

Located in the heart of San Francisco’s Tenderloin District, this community park was re-designed by the Trust for Public Land (TPL) to provide safe multi-generational gathering spaces and play areas for local children of all ages.

JNRA was the Landscape Architect of record for the project as consultants to Sherwood Design Engineers. A new community/recreation building anchors the south end of the park stepping up the slope and opening onto terraced plazas and play spaces. Recreational facilities include a basketball court, an outdoor fitness room, lawn area, stage for a performance, and multipurpose courts. A separate area is created for community gardening. Ample seating is available throughout the park. Public art is incorporated into the structure of the spaces and in the choice of furnishings as well as play features. The existing trees are preserved and supplemented to complete the spatial frame. All stormwater is cleaned and filtered with bio-swales, flow-through planters, and permeable paving. This project has been designed and built as a Sustainable Sites Initiative Pilot Project.
