Details: Upper Noe Valley Rec Center

Judging by the amount of people who find us because they're searching for information on the Upper Noe Rec Center, people are having a hard time getting it. Some squatter is sitting on and there's no info there. [see update below] And following any other link from Google doesn't help either - information about the Rec Center is buried. Friends of the Noe Valley Rec Center's site hasn't been updated in months.

Apparently the City wants you to enjoy your parks. They just don't want to make it easy to find out how. So we did some researching, and here's what we found out.

The current Open Gym schedule:

Monday: 7-9pm
Tue, Wed, Fri: 1-4:30pm
Thursday: 1-3pm

Kid's Open Gym is Monday-Friday from 10-11:30am.

For all other activities and facilities, families are required to sign up through the San Francisco Recreation and Park Department (here's a searchable activities schedule). The park gates and bathrooms are open during daylight hours - as are the field and playground.

Of course, the schedule "will vary and [is] subject to change." For that reason, it's a good idea to call (415) 970-8061 for up-to-date information.

And yes - the sandbox has re-opened.

Update (12/15/08): An official website has launched, but there's not much there yet. "Additionally, we are revamping our web site to be a better conduit for information to and from you and Rec and Park. So, again, check back soon for more updates."

Thank you for posting this info. The link is great, too bad they don't do weekend tennis lessons.
