WILLIE 'WOO WOO' WONG PLAYGROUND
OWNER / SF REC & PARK
LANDSCAPE ARCHITECT / CMG
LOCATION / SAN FRANCISCO, CA
UDCE is providing full site civil engineering for the renovation of Willie ‘Woo Woo’ Wong Park and Playground, one of Chinatown’s few, and therefore heavily-used, outdoor recreation areas. The existing park consists of three levels – an upper court, a middle playground, and a lower clubhouse, spaning 40 vertical feet of grade change. CMG’s design will better integrate the three levels with a series of bridges and sloped walkways, increasing the usable area for fitness and recreation. Chinatown’s cultural and historical legacy will be featured prominently throughout the playground.
The plan was developed through a community engagement process that included public meetings, focus groups, and dialogues with community organizations and leaders. The proposed concept achieved resounding support from the community.
