Hilltop Park

For decades, this vibrant San Francisco park was celebrated for its spectacular views of the bay, its eye-catching, 70-foot-high steel sundial, and the city's first skatepark. After falling into decline, we worked with the city's Recreation and Parks Department, Parks 94124, and community members to restore the space to its former glory by adding new features suggested by residents of the local Bayview neighborhood.

The site makeover now includes something for everyone, from a renovated skatepark, new playground, wellness trail, a picnic and barbeque area, a scenic overlook, and a Trust for Public Land Fitness Zone® exercise area for adults. The park also includes sustainability features such as native and drought-tolerant plants, natural irrigation, and stormwater retention.

The renovation project was made possible with generous city, state and philanthropic funding, and the input and hard work of many committed stakeholders.
