Our third annual Sunset Piano Block Party atop Starr King Open Space (at 23rd St. and Carolina) is right around the corner! Enjoy tasty food and craft beers from one of San Francisco’s most scenic viewpoints, while listening to live piano performances by amazing local musicians.
Do you go to Starr King Open Space to watch the sunset? Do you walk your dog atop our hilltop open space? Do you enjoy this little urban oasis and want to see it protected from development? Do you want to get more involved in your community?
As a Potrero Hill resident, you are an owner and steward of this land. It isn’t managed by the SF Rec. & Park Department, it is up to us to take care of the land and protect it for future generations.
If you are a Potrero Hill resident and would like to help preserve our neighborhood grassland, please consider running for our board. We have one (1) open seat on the board this year. You can apply online. All residents (renters and homeowners) 18 and older are eligible to run for our all-volunteer Board, as well as vote for candidates at the Annual Meeting and Election on May 15th @ 6:30 at Starr King Elementary. Proof of residency must be provided to be a candidate. If you have any questions about what this commitment means, feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Wildflower walks happen annually to showcase the great CA native plant diversity that we have on the Open Space. Over the course of the spring, more than 20 wildflowers can be found blooming in the Open Space if you know where to look!
Meet at the swing across from Starr King Elementary. Walks are free, relatively informal, good for families, fun for photographers, and last about an hour. This year we will provide free mimosas to enjoy while we walk.
The is the first of two (2) walks planned for Spring 2017:
– Sunday March 12th, 11am
– Sunday April 9th, 11am
Partnered with Biobag to launch a first-of-its-kind system in San Francisco for composting dog waste, demonstrating the potential to keep waste from entering the SF landfill each year and move the city closer to its goal of zero waste
Volunteers planting natives where Coral Road was removed.
In 2017 we will complete the removal of Coral Road and fill that area with native plantings. Most of that has been funded by grants from the city. That project is continuing and we are applying for another grant to finish the work. But if that money isn’t awarded to us, we will need to come up with close to twenty thousand dollars. As such, your contribution this year is crucial.
Starr King Open Space and the 501(c)3 organization that manages it survive solely on donations and grants. With these funds, the Board is able to keep the Open Space safe, clean, and beautiful for everyone to enjoy.
Whether you walk your dog on Starr King Open Space, enjoy the sunsets, or just appreciate the value of wild open space, you understand we can’t afford to lose this neighborhood treasure.
