Fillmore Turk awarded Community Challenge Grant, moves forward into construction!
TS studio's fillmore turk mini park went out to bid this week, after 6 years this project is finally headed for construction! It has been a remarkable process of working on this project with the community - thanks to Friends of the Fillmore Turk Mini Park, New Leadership Community Foundation, SF Beautiful and San Francisco Recreation and Park Department.
The vision for this project was driven directly through community input of park users with a series of workshops, on-site data collection and community meetings starting in 2014. The park envisions an inclusive and active space supported through performances, chess tournaments and community driven events that bring people together.
Thanks to the grants and funding that has supported this project including Community Challenge Grant 2020 Winner, Community Opportunity Fund Grant Winner 2016, District 5 Supervisor's office, San Francisco Recreation and Park Department.
