Shared Schoolyard Project

Welcome to the Shared Schoolyard Project Community Initiative, a joint partnership between the City and County of San Francisco, San Francisco Unified School District and Community Partners. We are opening thousands of acres of safe play areas for our children, families and residents of San Francisco to gather and play. This partnership will bring our communities closer together while joining all of our efforts to raise strong and healthy children.

Program pivots due to COVID-19

It is more important than ever to provide our children and communities with access to safe and welcoming outdoor spaces to play and recreate. That is why we have safely reopened all participating schoolyards on July 4th, 2020 and launched the Shared Schoolyard 2.0 Initiative.

Shared Schoolyard 2.0 launch

The Shared Schoolyard 2.0 Initiative seeks to enhance the experience of the Shared Schoolyard Project for both the schools and surrounding communities. The new program, is being hosted at 12 sites this Fall, and offers:

  • FREE and COVID-SAFE youth programming (i.e. soccer, biking, etc.)
  • Portable restrooms and handwashing stations for day-use
  • A Schoolyard Docent hired and trained by SFUSD to lightly enforce social distancing and promote safe use of the schoolyard
  • Routine landscaping and custodial maintenance to improve appearance and usability of the yard. 

Fall 2020 Shared Schoolyard 2.0 sites

From September 19th to November 22nd (10-week Fall season), the following sites will be offering socially distanced programming at the participating 2.0 schoolyards, below. These sites were selected based on a number of criteria including population density, access to open space and equity.
