Greetings Friends and McKinley Square Park Community!

Please join us at the annual Love Your Park Day benefiting the Children’s Playground areas at McKinley Square.  All are welcome – and we especially need your help again on this round of improvements!  This year's community project is wrapped around a generous donation we received, which intends to install fresh new playground sand into the children's play areas located in the upper terrace. Our annual events continue to support the need for park improvements and funding.  And, once again - we really need your in order to activate this donation for the benefit of the many children and families who enjoy this neighborhood park.


9:00AM - 12:00 PM

McKinley Square Park

800 Vermont Street @ 20th

What do we need? Our friends at Recreation and Parks have asked us to rally the neighbors, guarantee a minimum 50 volunteers (donating 3.0 hours) to make this effort a true community partnership. We’re sponsoring a fun day too including a BBQ Fundraiser hosted by our park partners from the SF Deputy Sheriff’s Association and SFPD.  We have reserved a bouncy house for the kids and created some T-Shirts too.  We're also going to host an informal design gallery showcasing the 2012 Park Improvements & Designs.  Please join us and help support your neighborhood park by making a commitment to volunteer today.

We’d also like to thank the many neighborhood organizations for supporting the annual improvement efforts and our park partners including Supervisor Cohen, SF RPD, Department of Public Works, Caltrans, The Tides Foundation, Studio Green Landscape Designs, Vermont St. Neighborhood Association, SFPD and the SF Deputy Sheriffs Association.    

If we missed you in the past, please sign-up for event updates to support park improvements and much needed funding. 

We’re looking forward to seeing you at the park!

Your friends,
