This 2014 renovation retained two existing baseball/softball diamonds and soccer field, but added a new full-size soccer field and a U8 soccer pitch. To allow for a greater variety of youth sports opportunities, the soccer fields were also lined for football practice, lacrosse and rugby. To accommodate the park’s regular volleyball matches, two volleyball courts were lined in the youth baseball outfield with sleeves to hold volleyball poles and nets – a first in San Francisco. The renovation added 5,365 hours of new ground sports play.
