About Upper Yosemite Creek Daylighting Project
The San Francisco Public Utilities Commission (SFPUC) is considering daylighting the upper portion of Yosemite Creek which once flowed from McNab Lake to San Francisco Bay.
This project will “daylight” the historic Yosemite Creek along the periphery of McLaren Park in close partnership with the San Francisco Recreation and Parks Department and the local community. Daylighting the historic Yosemite Creek will collect excess stormwater flows along Wayland Street and McLaren Park, and possibly continue downstream - perhaps one day, connecting the creek to the San Francisco Bay. Community input during the planning phase of the project will help guide the design and specific elements in the Upper Yosemite Creek Daylighting project. The planning and design will be responsive to the community values and feedback received at community meetings and interactive online surveys.
