Support building the Dogpatch Playground at SFMTA's Woods Mini-Park

Years ago, when the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA) built its Woods facility in San Francisco's Dogpatch neighborood, it built a playground and promised to maintain it for the community's benefit. Over the years, though, the playground at Woods fell into disrepair and was removed.

Since the playground was removed, Dogpatch has grown tremendously with thousands of new residents, many of them young children, moving into the area. It’s no surprise that 5 pre-K and elementary schools (Potrero Kids, Little Lync, La Scuola, Friends of Potrero Hill Nursery School, altSchool) have all sited their facilities in Dogpatch and Potrero over the last 5 years to accomodate the growing needs of our neighborhood's youngest residents.

The Dogpatch Playground Working Group — a team of Dogpatch/Potrero Hill residents and parents — has been working closely with SFMTA staff, Supervisor Malia Cohen and the San Francisco Parks Alliance to design and build a playground at the Woods facility. Together, with the help of several foundations/nonprofits, over 100 individual donors and 20 businesses, we have raised more than the $106,000 budgeted to build the playground with additional funds still streaming in to support revitalization efforts at the Woods property.

The community is ready to get to work and build the Dogpatch Playground.

We ask that the SFMTA Board of Directors support this project that the community, SFMTA staff, Supervisor Cohen, San Francisco Parks Alliance, and all our individual and organizational donors have worked so hard to turn into reality.
