Dolores Park Works sent out the following announcement this evening. We’ll be following up with a full story tomorrow.
San Francisco Recreation and Park Department (RPD), Neighborhood Parks Council and Friends of Dolores Park Playground announced today the renovation of the Mission Dolores Park Playground. The schedule calls for construction to begin at the beginning of June 2011, and the estimated completion date is February 2012. Below is an excerpt from today’s media release:
On April 21, 2011, the Recreation and Park Commission awarded Bauman Landscape & Construction the contract to renovate the playground in Mission Dolores Park. Construction workers will be on site between May 23 and June 1 installing a new temporary access driveway into the park just south of the intersection of Dolores and 19th Street for use by service vehicles while the main driveway is closed for the playground construction project. This construction activity will result in the installation of a temporary safety barricade immediately around the area of work. Bauman Landscape Construction is expected to begin staging and performing pre-construction activities during the first week of June. Mobilization activities include the placement of the perimeter construction fencing and the project trailer. The playground, picnic tables and adjacent lawn areas within the designated Areas of Work will be officially closed to the public once the perimeter construction fence is installed and the playground site is handed off to the contractor. The remainder of Mission Dolores Park will remain open and accessible to the public.
