Friends of Kezar triangle is a non-profit organization formed to re-imagine and revitalize the Kezar Triangle, a 2.8 acre section of Golden Gate Park in San Francisco. Our goal is to promote a holistic approach to place that combines art, ecology and community engagement. Park improvements and art events emerge from this understanding. With the creative support of the Carla and David Crane Foundation and a growing coalition of neighbors, artists, and urban landscape specialists, the group has been working with the SF Recreation and Parks Department on the site as a fiscally sponsored project of the San Francisco Parks Alliance. Local residents and all those who pass through and enjoy the Kezar Triangle are invited to join us in asking:
How can the Kezar Triangle serve, engage and delight its community more effectively?
Friends of Kezar Triangle is happy to celebrate the completion of the first phase of a revitalization program that has been nearly two years in the making. With the support and guidance of our partners and the community, visitors to the park can now enjoy the benefits of new irrigation improvements, ground rehabilitation and ADA compliance, native trees and plants that emphasize color and texture planted by Miller Company Landscape Architects. With guidance from the volunteer Kezar Triangle Arts Coalition, a variety of nature-based temporary art installations will be created and installed in the park over the coming years, all of which are intended to encourage community engagement.
As always, we welcome your support, ideas and enthusiasm for helping transform what was largely a pass-through park into a vibrant place for people and nature.
If you want to volunteer for events and plantings at the Kezar Triangle please email our volunteer coordinator at the Rec and Park Department!
