At one time, things were just not going well in Alamo Square Park. There were always problems with the grounds or facilities. However, recent reports made by the SF Controller’s Office in evaluation of the Recreation and Parks Department, have revealed a marked improvement in service.
Alamo Square, two years ago, was dingy at 81% for park service reviews. Now, quarterly reports over the past year showed that most of the time facilities are at 88-98.9%. In comparison, Dolores Park scored 71.8%. Dolores Park was also listed as the 3rd worst park in SF.
What this means will be different for each person. However, getting involved on behalf of Alamo Square Park is also recommended. Local neighborhood organizations do many things. In addition to raising funds for parks, they also have periodic needs for volunteers to work on projects like planting a garden.
By contacting the Alamo Square Neighborhood Association, you can find out about events and meetings. You can also be added to their email list for volunteering on special projects.
