Welcome to the Tompkins Stairs Project.


We are a dedicated group of neighbors committed to improving the quality of the Tompkins stairs in Bernal Heights, San Francisco. The stairs have been declining in terms of safety and beauty for years. They have become a center for crime and garbage. But we're committed to changing that. We believe the stairs can be the following:

a) a safe and secure space
b) a beautiful place we can be proud of  

On this site you will find information about our efforts.

Thanks to our friends at Aterra Landscape Architects we have a proposed design for the stairs. Check out the preliminary designs below!

We are a small but dedicated group of neighbors in Bernal Heights. But we're always looking for more help to make sure we make the stairs a permanent and beautiful fixture of our neighborhood. If you would like to help out or learn more about our efforts use the link below to contact us.
