Restore and improve Buena Vista Park

    1. Petition by

      Friends of Buena Vista Park

Buena Vista Park is San Francisco's first neighborhood park and the third largest park in the system.  It is currently overwhelmed with vagrant camping, creating huge litter, health hazards, soil erosion and vegetation damage.  In addition, there is a long-deferred need for forest management and fire hazard reduction.  Our park deserves better!  This petition is designed to start a public process that can encourage a more coordinated effort by City Agencies to deal with Buena Vista's short and long-term problems, and a parallel effort by neighbors and day visitors to the park to suggest solutions, expand volunteer efforts, and consider financing options to bring more resources to the park.

      The Haight's Buena Vista Park needs some love

      The park on the eastern edge of the Haight-Ashbury has been neglected for too long, nearby residents say, with footpaths crumbling from erosion and old trees dropping limbs from a lack of regular care. The age of the trees - coupled with the fact that the forested hilltop was basically plopped onto a giant sand dune - necessitates near-constant maintenance.
