During a trip to the west coast last year, I visited a nicely-designed little park in the SoMa (South of Market) neighborhood of San Francisco. South Park is also the name of the sub-neighborhood of SoMa within which this park is situated, first developed in the mid-1800s. The park underwent a major renovation in 2016, and now includes a playground, walkways, picnic and seating areas, lawns, and plantings (including bio-retention areas). The custom-designed play structure is the centerpiece of the park, serving as both an attractive sculpture and an exciting play experience.
