About Us

Pennsylvania Street Gardens began in 2008 with the mission of transforming neglected land into public gardens to improve the livability and safety of our neighborhood. Annie Shaw decided to take matters into her own hands, gathered community support, and navigated a maze of government agencies to create an urban oasis, Pennsylvania Garden. Annie ensured the future of the garden by partnering with Emily Gogol to start the non-profit Pennsylvania Street Gardens, and signed contracts with Caltrans, San Francisco Department of Public Works, and the San Francisco Parks Alliance. In November 2012 we broke ground on another park at Seventeenth Street and Pennsylvania Avenue named the Pennsylvania Railroad Garden.
