Pavement to Parks San Francisco


The Pavement to Parks program seeks to transform the dialogue about San Francisco's public realm and the role of public spaces in the life and vitality of the city. Experiments typically begin with short week-long and low-cost demonstration closures in unused portions of the street. Successful experiments are then temporarily closed for a year or more. Embraced by the community, some plazas are now transitioning to permanent status and capital upgrades, and new plaza locations are being discussed for the future.
