Showplace Plaza: Pavement to Park
Showplace Plaza, or Lower Potrero plaza project, depending on who you ask, is the third landscape development project commissioned by the San Francisco Planning Department's Pavement to Park initiative to transform static public space into recreational "parks." The REBAR Group provided the design pro bono, and the rest has been a collaborative effort among city workers, volunteers, CCA students and faculty, community members, and others.

The park is situated at the intersection of 16th and Eighth streets between Axis Café and Wolfe's Lunch cafe. CCA's Graphic Design faculty and staff hosted the inaugural public event—a kick-off mixer and BBQ held September 10. (See Showplace Plaza Kick-Off set.)
