NOE VALLEY TOWN SQUARE
After six years in the planning, San Francisco’s newest public space, Noe Valley Town Square, opened in the fall of 2016. The community group Residents for Noe Valley Town Square, in collaboration with Supervisor Scott Weiner’s office and the San Francisco Parks Alliance, turned this former parking lot into a beautiful multi-use open plaza and playground space.
Located at 3861 24th Street, it’s the only open space in Noe Valley’s commercial corridor and it is the permanent home of the Noe Valley Farmers Market every Saturday from 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
The Town Square hosts a growing number of neighborhood events in addition to the Farmer’s Market, including the twice-weekly Bootcamp on the Square workout, theatre productions, music events, dances, dinners on the Square, the Noe Valley County Fair and much more.
The open plaza is designed to serve many purposes for the neighborhood, from gathering place to event space and more. Grab a coffee or tea across the street and sit under the trellises and soak in this urban oasis.
While enjoying the Town Square, don’t miss Mona Caron’s beautiful murals which frame the space on each side.
