Lake Merced is a jewel in the southwest corner of San Francisco, an important water, recreational, and natural resource for the surrounding communities. In centuries past the Ohlone Tribe lived on its shores.

Lake Merced, however a popular place to visit, began to deteriorate - aging recreational facilities, degraded habitat, and lowered lake level caused public alarm.

In more recent years the Lake has served for folks to come together for picnics, crewing regattas, trout derbies, 5K runs, mornings of bird watching and many other events. Students from nearby schools and colleges have completed course requirements with studies of the wildlife habitat, water quality, and history of the lake. And everyday, large numbers of areas residents walk, run, bike, and rollerblade around its edge.

The Lake Merced Task Force was founded to address the deterioration and the Lake's sustainability as one of San Francisco's most valuable natural and recreational areas.
