Fair Oaks Beautification Association (FOBA)

The Fair Oaks Beautification Association (FOBA) is an all-volunteer, non-profit community organization. FOBA was established in 1996 as a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) group. FOBA’s mission is to improve the quality of life for residents for the North Fair Oaks neighborhood. Our community volunteer efforts have included planting and caring for over 400 street trees, installing traffic calming devices to make our streets safer, building and maintaining the parks and playground, organizing a neighborhood-wide garage sale event and social gatherings, coordinating a community gardening project, and producing our neighborhood newsletter Avenues. 

Pocket Park:

FOBA has completed construction of a pocket park on the Hetch Hetchy right-of-way parcel at the corner of Bay Road and 18th Avenue. The dedication ceremony was on September 21st and attended by many neighbors and District 4 County Supervisor Warren Slocum. This parcel has been a weed-filled lot for years but through the efforts of a committed group of neighbors it has been made into a beautiful pocket park filled with native, drought-resistant plants.

North Fair Oaks Playground:
Recently, SFPUC installed a large new pipe to carry drinking water from Hetch Hetchy near Yosemite to Bay Area residents and on October 12, FOBA hosted a playground fun day at the playground. It was a success with over 100 parents and children coming and going, enjoying the hot dogs, cookies, apples, face painting, and bouncy house! There was even a visit from local firefighters and Engine No. 5.
