Översikt

Ingen har röstat än

This square was established in 1868 as Franklin Square when its 4.4 acres between 16th and 17th, Bryant and Hampshire Streets, were purchased for $576,000. Ten years later the Board of Supervisors approved a bill to "immediately borrow $100,000 in gold coin" and park commissioners allotted $12,000 "to immediately grade, fence, plant and improve Franklin Park and conduct water pipes therein." . It suffered a temporary loss of identity in 1950 when it was renamed Father Crowley Playground after the original Father Crowley Playground at Seventh and Harrison Streets was demolished to make room for the Bayshore Freeway. Since that park had been the first to operate under the supervision of the Playground Commission, whose president was Father Crowley, they perpetuated the name of the man said to be "the father of the playground movement." Subsequently its original name was returned to Franklin Square and the Rev. D.O. Crowley joined other memorable names in Recreation and Park history. (San Francisco City-County Record, 1936).
