Visitacion Valley Greenway

The Visitacion Valley Greenway is a series of 6 contiguous parks running through a residential neighborhood, each a block long near Rutland St., on a former SF Water Department right-of-way. The land is owned by the PUC and managed by SF Rec and Parks and the local community. It functions as an outdoor classroom, a place for neighborly interaction, and a green corridor.
