More about the Buchanan Mall: The Buchanan Mall is five consecutive blocks of underutilized public parkland in the Western Addition neighborhood of San Francisco. The green space transects seven public housing communities, and has become a locus of turf conflict and an unsafe “no man’s land.” Green Streets, Citizen Film, the Exploratorium, the Trust for Public Land and the San Francisco Recreation and Parks Department have been working with local residents to transform the public park into a vital new center of community pride, featuring a lighted art walk and storytelling installations in a variety of media.
