Funded with $3.2 million from the city’s general fund, improvements to the 90-year-old stadium are largely concentrated on the field (improved drainage, new pole vault and long jump areas) and the track, Also fun fact, some 1,000 reclaimed seats from Candlestick Park have been added to bleachers at the 50-yard line.
For some of you sports history buffs, you might already know that Kezar Stadium was home to the San Francisco 49ers until 1970 and served as the football field for high school games against Polytechnic High School and Lowell High School in the 1920s.
The track closed to the public for over 7 months. We're hoping to take a commemorative run around the new track sometime soon. See you there!
