On Friday, Deputy Secretary of State Estenoz announced a $61.1 million investment under the ORLP program in 2022 for communities across the country.

He was supported by local, state and neighborhood officials.

Leaders toured the Buchanan Street Mall, which will receive an approximately $4 million grant to create new amenities and activities that the community has been asking for, such as: B. a community garden and open grass, playgrounds and picnic areas.

A continuous walking/jogging path will now run through the park, connecting the five blocks of Buchanan Street Mall.

The group also visited Bay View Park, a project that just completed with ORLP funding and was recognized earlier this year. Bay View funding was used to rehabilitate the park, expand neighborhood pedestrian access points, and install new exercise equipment stations, picnic tables, and play structures.

Founded in 2014, the ORLP initiative enables urban communities to develop new outdoor recreation areas, revitalize existing parks and foster connections between people and nature in economically underserved locations.

To provide urban Bay Area residents and tourists from around the world with more opportunities to experience national parks, Assistant Secretary of State Estenoz celebrated the opening of the Presidio Tunnel Tops Saturday, along with Spokesperson Nancy Pelosi and local San Francisco leaders.
