View from India Basin shoreline park

In 2003, The Trust for Public Land led a community-based process to rethink and update the existing India Basin Shoreline Park. Starting in 2014 we began working with San Francisco Parks and Recreation, the Bayview community, and other partners on a comprehensive plan to extend parks and trails along the entire sweep of India Basin, including the former industrial site at 900 Innes Avenue. The vision is a new park at this site and a revitalized shoreline park system in Bayview.

Situated within one of the densest, lowest income, most diverse, and park poor neighborhoods, the Tenderloin Wellness Trail works to prioritize the streets and sidewalks between all Tenderloin parks and playgrounds in order to cultivate a safe, vibrant and beautiful wellness trail. The Tenderloin is home to the densest concentration of children and families, yet the few open spaces that exist are often underutilized, unknown, or disconnected.
