Neighborhood Projects

People across the Inner Sunset are coming together to make the neighborhood a better place. Because of their enthusiasm and dedication, all kinds of projects have come alive. It’s not up to government, institutions, or “experts” to lead the way – it’s up to us, and we all have a part to play.

The below is a non-exhaustive list of some of the local project/program highlights from recent years. Complete this form if you would like your project added to the below.

Many of the below projects were made possible with support from Inner Sunset Park Neighbors. In some instances, ISPN led the project (complete list of ISPN projects); in other cases ISPN’s role was none or limited (eg. offering general advice). Every project is different. Read about how ISPN can help with your project.
