Spark is a new urban gathering space located in the heart of Mission Bay. We are a food truck park, beer/sangria garden, and event space designed to bring the neighborhood together for fun times, day or night. We collaborate with small businesses to ignite the spirit of community by creating warm and welcoming spaces to grub and gather. We work with over 150 food trucks from all over the Bay Area which we rotate every single day for both lunch and dinner.
Spark is developed by the SoMa StrEat Food Park team and is their 2nd endeavor to build community by cultivating social spaces around street food.
The Mission Bay location is a partnership with Parklab, a project of District Development, transforming vacant lots into creative community hubs in SF’s newest neighborhood.
Spark was designed and built by San Francisco-based LMNOP Design, which specializes in branded environments and public spaces. LMNOP provided turn-key design and construction services for Spark, including initial concept and design development, site layout, permitting, branding, value engineering, project management, custom fabrication, and construction.
