August 1, 2016: On Friday, July 29, 2016 the formal signing of the Agreement between Francisco Park Conservancy and San Francisco Recreation and Park Department, took place! They are looking forward to the public outreach process and will be updating everyone soon

July 22, 2014, the Board of Supervisors voted unanimously  to approve Agenda Item #34, to transfer the defunct Francisco Park from the SFPUC, to the Recreation & Park Department to create a new public park for San Francisco.This is a major step in the process of moving forward with a plan to turn the empty, concrete reservoir that was decommissioned over 60 years ago into green, open space. The new park will be a true benefit to the neighborhoods surrounding Russian Hill, which has long been high-dense area with limited open spaces residents can use for recreation.
