A meeting next Wednesday, April 18th hosted by the Buena Vista Neighborhood Association is set for discussion of, among other things, curtailing park hours in Buena Vista Park "to support neighborhood and park safety," according to a community notice.

Representatives from SFPD's Park Station and San Francisco Rec & Park will also attend the gathering, which is open to all members of the community.

The key item of business, which will also include discussion of future bond funding and recent park improvements, is a proposal to begin closing Buena Vista Park between 10pm and 6am. Currently, the space is closed from midnight to 5am.

Representatives from BVNA haven't responded to queries from Hoodline about the proposed change or specific safety concerns that they're hoping to address.

Area residents have sought more direct management of the park lately by trying to create a Green Benefit District that would levy fees on homeowners in a certain area to fund a nonprofit that helps implement local improvements. To take the Greater Buena Vista Park GBD survey, click here.
