About Eagle Plaza
Eagle Plaza will transform a portion of 12th Street between Harrison and Bernice Streets in San Francisco’s Western SoMa neighborhood into a public pedestrian-oriented plaza with a shared public way, with green, safe spaces for people of all ages to gather, relax, play, and celebrate. The plaza is designed for both active and passive recreation, with open, hardscape areas that can host neighborhood gatherings, events, and performances, as well as quiet, green spaces. Importantly, featuring the leather pride flag flying high, Eagle Plaza will be a commemorative public space for Western SoMa’s Leather and LGBTQ communities.
