WHO WE ARE

Established in late 2016, the Carolina Green Space, created by a volunteer group of Potrero Hill neighbors, is working to improve the safety and beauty of our large median on Carolina Street, between 22nd and 23rd Streets, one of the largest vegetated islands in San Francisco.

 

We have come together to make our “island,” which was formerly a beautiful space maintained by the City, once again into an inviting green space and gathering spot for our neighborhood, our community, and the citizens and visitors to San Francisco as a whole.
