INGLESIDE, San Francisco — The Recreation and Parks Department will hold a virtual community meeting to review two design options for the Merced Heights Playground lower terrace, the second part in the park’s $6 million renovation.

The large tree-lined lawn is popular with dog walkers. However senior advocates have requested it be made into a place where they can recreate.

With a $1.3 million state grant, RPD intends to upgrade the accessible entrance at the field level on Shields Street, establish a pathway, seating, natural lawn and separate synthetic turf dog play area, according to RPD’s webpage for the project.

RPD will purchase exercise equipment if funding allows and will take ideas for recognizing community champions.

Feedback about the plans by a survey on the RPD website through Sunday, Feb. 21.
