Sunset Playground is a four acre park that occupies a full city block between 28th and 29th Avenues, at Lawton and Moraga. In addition to a recreation center, the site has two tennis courts, a basketball court, a baseball field, children's play areas, and a small community garden. A retaining wall topped with chain link fencing surrounds the perimeter of the playground. There are few trees within the playground, and the planted areas were minimal. The recreation center contains a large gymnasium with bleachers. In the basement, below the bleachers, there are locker rooms and a storage area. The recreation center also has a large community room with a stage, an office, a kitchen, bathrooms, and a ping pong room.
The project scope includes the renovation of the recreation center, children's play area, and fields and courts; restoration of existing roads and pathways; upgrades to the irrigation and lighting systems; modifications to the site to remove barriers and improve accessibility, and overall reconditioning of the park landscape.
