For nearly a century San Franciscans have enjoyed the 13.7-acres of recreational opportunities provided by Mission Dolores Park. To help keep up with the use of the park and make much-needed infrastructure improvements, San Francisco voters approved the 2008 Clean and Safe Neighborhood Parks Bond, a $185 million general obligation bond that includes bond funding to improve Mission Dolores Park. The South-end (tennis courts to the Clubhouse) will be the half of a two-phase construction process.
