San Francisco's Alamo Square Park is set to reopen Wednesday after a year-long renovation.

The city spent $5 million to replace the grass with a drought resistant variety.

It also added new benches and a water bottle filling station.

The park will feature a new single-user restroom that can accommodate wheelchairs, and a better sprinkler system to keep that new grass green.

A reopening ceremony is planned for 11:30 a.m. Wednesday.
