Alamo Square Park, beloved by tourists and San Franciscans alike, will undergo a $4.3 million renovation to update the irrigation system, build an ADA-accessible restroom, and landscape the entire park. The whole park will be fenced off and inaccessible from April to the end of the year, a short-term inconvenience that will result in considerable long-term benefits. The outcome of the project will be significant reduction in water usage from improved irrigation design, the installation of “smart” controllers, and the planting of lawn alternatives such as no-mow grasses that are native to the western U.S. It will also include the installation of free Wi-Fi for the entire park, donated by Google as a 2-year pilot program.
