Walk San Francisco’s monthly members walk, co-hosted by the San Francisco Housing Action Coalition, and led by Walk SF Board member, car-free resident, and Director of Design and Planning at the Mission Bay Development Group, Luke Stewart.
Take a flat, two-mile walking tour through Mission Bay will focus on what’s happened in Mission Bay since 1998, where you will meet and hear from local residents and builders on the past, present and future of this emerging and rapidly changing neighborhood.
You will begin near the Caltrain Station and head south and then westward along Mission Creek. You’ll stop to learn about the history of the houseboat community, as well as Huffaker Park and nearby community gardens. Then it’s on to explore the mega-blocks of the city’s most visible redevelopment project, with stops including Mercy Housing’s recently completed 150-unit affordable housing development at 4th Street. You’ll also get a peek at projects still under construction, including the Mission Bay Children’s Park at the heart of the new residential community; and One Mission Bay, a 350-unit mixed use development, next to a proposed extension of Mission Creek Park.
After enjoying views of the piers, marina, and Oakland Bay from the eastern bayfront, you’ll arrive at the final walk stop. Get an overview of Mission Rock, the San Francisco Giant’s proposed mixed-use project just south of the ballpark. As nothing more than a parking lot today, the site invites you to think about how to plan a community asset and bring place making to life.
The walk ends at The Yard, for optional drinks and snacks.
