Pavement to Parks

Pavement to Parks is a collaborative effort between the San Francisco Planning Department, the Department of Public Works, the Municipal Transportation Agency, and the Mayor’s Office. San Francisco’s streets and public rights-of-way make up 25% of the city’s land area, more space than all the park area combined. Many of our streets are excessively wide and contain large zones of underutilized space, especially at intersections. San Francisco’s “Pavement to Parks” program seeks to temporarily reclaim these unused swathes of land and quickly and inexpensively turn them into new public spaces.
