Posted by justin marks on

Join Left Side Skateboards & SF Skate Club on the closing celebration skate jam at Playland at 43rd Avenue Saturday May 7th, 2022 from 12-4pm

Skate Jam Sign-ups at 11:30am


Help us find a new home for the skatepark at Playland 43rd Avenue. Sign up for the email list to get the latest news and events to help advocate for the skatepark. The email list will be at the skatepark during the event.


After 6 years of fun and adventures, Playland will close and make way for the Shirley Chisholm Village Educator Housing project (SCV). In partnership with SFUSD and the Mayor’s Office of Housing and Community Development, MidPen Housing is developing SCV. The project will provide affordable housing to low- and moderate-income households and will prioritize SFUSD educators and district employees. SCV is expected to start construction in August 2022 and complete construction in Summer 2024.


We have built friendships and memories under the pavilion, playing basketball, skating, at ping-pong tournaments, during art classes, or picking up veggies from the garden.


To celebrate 6 years of successful programs at Playland, the Planning Department will host a special event on Saturday, May 7th from 11am – 1pm at Playland.

Something that can become an archeological find of the wonderful place that has been Playland. Your special treasure will be included in the Playland Time Capsule, installed at the new Shirley Chisholm Village.


Objects could be: photographs, letters, postcards, small objects like buttons, a small object that fits in your hand, a flash drive with saved photos. If your object is bigger than your hand, take a picture and bring it to the closing party.
