Remembering the 19th Avenue Jet

From the 1950s to the early 1990s, three different retired Navy jets served as playground equipment in San Francisco's Larsen Park along 19th Avenue.

Now, after twenty jet-less years, Friends of Larsen Playground is working with District Four Supervisor Katy Tang, San Francisco Recreation and Park Department, and the San Francisco Parks Alliance to create a new jet-inspired play structure for future generations.

Join the Friends of Larsen Playground. Donations can be made through the San Francisco Parks Alliance specifically for Larsen Playground.
