HILLTOP PARK RECEIVES CIVIL ENGINEERING AWARD
October 1, 2018 – The recent $6.7 million renovation that transformed an underused park in the Bayview into a sought-after, multi-purpose public space for people of all ages has been selected by the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) San Francisco chapter as its Outstanding Parks and Recreation Project, the San Francisco Recreation and Parks Department announced today.
The Hilltop Park Renovation Project team was honored at the ASCE’s San Francisco Section meeting at the San Francisco War Memorial and Performing Arts Center. The team included the San Francisco Recreation and Park Department; The Trust for Public Land; community groups Parks 94124 and Hunters Point Family; Langan Engineering and Environmental Services; Miller Company Landscape Architects Inc., Robert A. Bothman Construction; and construction manager Mack5.
Located at the highest point in the Bayview District, the park was originally constructed in 1979. Renovations began in late November 2015 and were completed just under a year later. Hilltop’s updated features include the 70-foot sundial amphitheater and plaza, a new skateboard park replacing the former “dish,” two new playgrounds, additional seating, picnic and barbeque areas, an adult fitness and meditation area and accessible pathways.
