Joe DiMaggio Playground Improvement Project

The Joe DiMaggio Playground is a two-acre park with a children’s play area, tennis courts, bocce courts, pool building and sports courts. It sits directly next to the newly constructed North Beach Library and will transform one block of Mason Street from a street with vehicular traffic into a public park space. This project will reorganize and renovate all portions of the park, including:

  • Expanded and improved children’s play area with new safety and ADA requirements;
  • New and upgraded landscaping;
  • New and additional seating throughout the park;
  • Increased park safety and increased internal connections within the park;
  • Relocated and improved tennis courts;
  • New and improved lighting;
  • New and expanded bocce courts and picnic area; and
  • Resurfaced sports courts with new sports equipment and facilities.

 

The park’s renovation realizes a decade-old vision of the North Beach community. The neighbors, led by the Friends of Joe DiMaggio Playground, have been active participants in the planning and design of the project, as well as independently fundraising for upgrades for the new project.
