Friends of Treat Plaza

A plaza built in remembrance of the Mission's industrial past.

Treat Plaza will be located at an underutilized 3-way intersection in the heart of the Mission District. Formerly a rail right-of-way, this unique space was identified as a public space opportunity in the 2010 Mission District Streetscape Plan. The local community has expressed interest in turning the site into two community spaces (north and south of 16th Street) featuring gardens, seating areas, play elements, art installations and food kiosks for people to gather and to celebrate the area’s history as a railroad corridor and wetland ecosystem. The two new plazas could also offer flexible space for events and local fairs.

As part of Muni Forward, SFMTA began piloting street geometry changes at both the southwest and northeast corners of Harrison Street and 16th Street. Additionally, Groundplay, in partnership with the local community stakeholder and Friends of Treat Plaza, is developing a temporary installation to test the community's vision for the space. This temporary installation will test ideas of how the space could look and function before it transitions into a permanent plaza. SF Public Works will lead the permanent plaza implementation.
