UCSF Donation Supports Construction of “Green” Corridor

From UCSF,

As part of UCSF’s ongoing efforts to support the local community, the University presented the Neighborhood Parks Council’s Blue Greenway project with a donation to help fund the construction of a “green” corridor that will transform San Francisco's southeastern waterfront into a go-to destination for recreation.

The Blue Greenway is the City of San Francisco's effort to improve the City's Southern portion of the 500-mile, nine-county regional Bay Trail and the Bay Water Trail and associated waterfront open space system. The 13 miles of waterfront parks and trails are planned to run from the Giants’ AT& T Park to Candlestick Point, connecting the Bayview-Hunters Point development with direct access to downtown San Francisco.

“The southeastern waterfront has always been the maritime and industrial heart of the city,” said Meredith Thomas, executive director of the National Parks Council. “Now it has the potential to be a parks center as well, transforming into a place with world class bike trails and walkways. The UCSF grant allows us to come up with engagement tools and more opportunities to create excitement about the project.”
