After last week's second community planning meeting to discuss improvements to the area around Alvord Lake at Haight and Stanyan streets, the Recreation & Parks Department has released details for two separate proposals.

The differences between the plans are relatively minor, as both propose the following upgrades:

  • reopening a kiosk for a concession vendor;
  • installing a terrace with café tables, chairs and a bocce court (option 2 includes a pétanque court);
  • relocating the bike-rental corral south of the Haight St. entrance apron;
  • new flowerbeds flanking the Haight St. entrance and the removal of the large, circular planter in the center;
  • bollard-and-chain fencing along a new sidewalk fronting Stanyan St.;
  • broadened Page St. entrance;
  • re-sodded lawns and native plantings;
  • rustic wood fencing and new paths through the oak woodlands.

Sample photos of different materials and configurations are collected in a presentation from Rec & Park [PDF download].
