WRNS Studio

San Francisco’s Tenderloin is the City’s densest neighborhood, and most of its residents live below the poverty line in small apartments without access to green space. For decades, Boeddeker Park was riddled with problems. Attempts to address safety concerns had resulted in a maze of fences and visibility across the park was poor. Neighbors called it “Prison Park.” In response, The Trust for Public Land, in partnership with the City of San Francisco Recreation and Parks
Department, teamed with WRNS Studio to redesign and completely rebuild the one-acre park and clubhouse to meet the needs of the community. The team conducted extensive community outreach, holding public meetings and forums at the site as well as at nearby youth centers, senior centers, and churches—wherever local people were likely to come. The result is a new landmark park and clubhouse that serves as a model of civic engagement, inspiration, resource conservation, and adaptability.
