Shared Schoolyard Project to Host Kick-Off Celebrations in Coming Months

The San Francisco Shared Schoolyard Project - led by Supervisor Mark Farrell - is entering an exciting new phase, as the organization works toward opening previously closed schoolyards for families and children to gather and play. As more schools enroll in the in the project, we will host kick-off events at local schoolyards over the coming months to celebrate and build support for the project.

The first grand opening will take place at the Cleveland Elementary schoolyard Saturday, July 25th from 11 am to 1 pm. The community-driven event in the Excelsior neighborhood will feature a ribbon cutting ceremony by Supervisor Farrell, free snacks, a fire truck, and activities for the entire family.

Currently, 28 public schools citywide are enrolled in the Shared Schoolyard Project, but there is more work to be done. With the goal of opening over 80 schoolyards in the coming months, our kick-off events will not only serve as celebrations for the work we are achieving, but also as a method to garner support for this important community project.  

Stay tuned for more information regarding a kick-off event in your neighborhood. We hope you will join us and help spread the word!
