Hunters Point | Hillpoint Park

San Francisco, CA

A regional park with stunning San Francisco Bay views overlooking the Hunters Point Shipyard.

Hillpoint Park is the primary Hunters Point Phase One public park; it is the promontory overlook to the Shipyard waterfront open space system. It is both a regional open space destination and neighborhood park with sweeping vistas of the waterfront and San Francisco Bay. A large, gently sloping lawn creates an amphitheater-like environment to enjoy the views. Picnic areas and elegant seating invites people to use the park in a variety of ways and an elevated plaza creates a spectacular destination overlooking the shipyard. Native plantings embrace the park and create restored habitats. Several significant art installations are integrated within the park spaces. CMG worked closely with OCII (former San Francisco Redevelopment Agency) to design many custom and high-quality features into this public park to ensure that it will endure for future generations.

Hillpoint Park incorporates six new outdoor artworks: Flotilla by Eric Powell, Frame by Mildred Howard, Refrain by Walter Hood, Nautical Swing by Matthew Geller, Tile Art by Marion Coleman, and Stream of Consciousness by Think Round, Inc.

Innes Court extends extends into the community as a linear park. A path sets up rooms that include a picnic area, flexible lawn area, fenced children’s play area, and ornamental gardens. Artistic play structures are interpretations of the nearby monumental shipyard structures, and ships themselves. The park can also accommodate special events that extend out from Hillpoint Plaza.

Innes Court also features incorporates three new outdoor artworks: Butterfly Girl by Jason Webster, Gigantry by Rebar, and Starweave Canoe by Jessica Bodner.

These parks and others CMG is designing within the shipyard are in various phases of implementation, including 16 pocket parks.
