Treasure Island & City Leaders Celebrate Panorama Park Ribbon-Cutting

Published on May 16, 2024

The spring season continues to bloom in San Francisco, with the latest park opening drawing city leaders from across the Bay Area. A special ribbon-cutting ceremony celebrated the opening of Panorama Park, situated at the highest point of Yerba Buena Island and featuring the soaring 69-foot steel masterpiece “Point of Infinity” by Hiroshi Sugimoto. Amidst 360-degree views of the Bay waters, city skyline and Golden Gate Bridge, Fei Tsen, Mayor London Breed, Supervisor Matt Dorsey, City Administrator Carmen Chu, and Treasure Island Community Development Co-CEO Chris Meany spoke at the event. 

“San Francisco is home to the best parks and open spaces in the world and Panorama Park, with its spectacular views and world-class art installation, is a clear indication that the transformation of Treasure Island and Yerba Buena Island is well underway,” Breed said. 

Panorama Park was designed by Bay Area architect Walter J. Hood of Hood Design Studio and includes a winding elevated staircase, grassy areas with blooming flowers, and an overlook adorned with Monterey Cypress trees, as reported by CBS News, which was on hand for the event. The park is one of many on Yerba Buena Island, including the nearby recently opened Rocks Dog Park, the off-leash play area in the center of the island.

The parks are located moments from the residences of Yerba Buena Island, including The Bristol condominiums and the Townhomes, both of which are now selling and move-in ready. Residents enjoy Yerba Buena Island’s 72 acres of parks and open green space and miles of trails, plus those now open and coming soon on the neighboring Treasure Island. 

Treasure Island is set to welcome the first residents in late summer, with pre-leasing beginning in June at Isle House, the first new residential offering set for completion this year. Nearly 1,000 for-lease and for-sale residences will be available and move-in ready in 2024. Treasure Island is in the midst of a visionary transformation, set to bring 8,000 new homes, 22 miles of trails, and 300 acres of parks and open space to the city of San Francisco, located just an ~8-minute ferry ride from downtown.
