A collaborative effort between the San Francisco Planning Department, the Department of Public Works, and the Municipal Transportation Agency.
San Francisco's streets and public rights-of-way make up 25% of the city's land area; more space than all the public parks combined. Many of our streets are excessively wide and contain large underutilized areas, especially at intersections. San Francisco's "Pavement to Parks" program seeks to test the possibilities of these underused areas of land by quickly and inexpensively converting them into new pedestrian spaces.
