An inner-city sanctuary in the Tenderloin, the park was re-opened in December 2014 after significant renovations in partnership with the Trust for Public Land. Boeddeker offers a basketball half-court, swings, slide and play structures. The community clubhouse hosts year-round activity programs.
Wander through the plaza to see its historic clock, kiln and two public sculptures. The globe created by Anthony Smith celebrates the area’s diverse heritage, while Bruce Hassan’s bronze ‘Ark’ symbolizes the park as a safe haven for neighborhood families.
Opened in 1985, the park is named for beloved local pastor Father Alfred Boeddeker.
