The Recreation and Park Department
Amid a dynamic and ever-evolving urban landscape, the San Francisco Recreation and Park Department stewards one of the premier urban park systems in America.  San Francisco recently became the first city in the United States for which 100% of its residents live within a ten-minute walk of a park.  Considered by San Franciscans to be one of the City’s most popular and effective public agencies, our Department manages and maintains more than 225 parks, playgrounds, and open spaces in San Francisco, including two outside of city limits: Sharp Park in Pacifica and Camp Mather in the High Sierras. Our 4,100- acre system includes 25 recreation centers, 9 swimming pools, 5 golf courses and numerous athletic facilities, including sports courts, ball diamonds, soccer fields and gymnasiums. Included in the department’s responsibilities are Golden Gate Park, Coit Tower, the Marina Yacht Harbor, the Palace of Fine Arts, and TPC Harding Park golf course.

More than 2,000 talented individuals are part of our team, from gardeners, foresters, and recreation leaders to park rangers, custodians, electricians, painters and more. Our core mission, as it has been throughout our history, is to provide opportunities for San Francisco residents and visitors alike to gather, play, learn, relax, and enjoy nature in the city.

What else should I know?

Administrative Analyst Core Exam (Weight: 100%):  Candidates will be invited to participate in a written, multiple-choice examination, designed to measure their relative knowledge, skills and abilities in job-related areas. The “core” multiple-choice examination component may include but not be limited to:

  • Ability to evaluate/analyze information/data and to exercise good judgment relative to that evaluation or analysis
  • Ability to communicate written information (includes ability to proofread)
  • Knowledge of, and ability to apply, financial/fiscal principles (including the ability to use mathematical and statistical formulas)
  • Ability to comprehend and understand written information
  • Ability to use various computer software programs
  • Ability to conduct research
  • Ability to establish and maintain cooperative and effective working relationships
  • Knowledge of, and the ability to apply, principles, practices and procedures involving office operations

This is a standardized examination, and, therefore, test questions and answers are not available for public inspection or review.

You will receive one or more scores with respect to the multiple-choice exam component. One will correspond to the core test component and, should any specialty subtests be added to that component, you may receive one or more additional “specialty” scores. Any scores attained on these components will be valid and "banked" for three years, starting from the date of the examination. This means that, during this three-year time period, you will not be required to take any test components for which you have already attained a score. This core test is also used for 1820 Junior Administrative Analyst, 1822 Administrative Analyst and 1823 Senior Administrative Analyst, and the subtest is also used for 1824 Principal Administrative Analyst, therefore your test scores may be applied to one or more of these classes if you choose to apply to future recruitments. If the selection process for the future announcement is held within one year of the date of this examination and it includes any of these components [i.e., core exam or specialty subtest(s)], your score(s) for the corresponding test component(s) will be automatically applied to that announcement. However, after one year, you have the option to either (a) apply your test score(s) to the other announcement or (b) re-take the test component(s). Re-testing is permitted no sooner than one year from the date of the examination and only in association with your eligibility for another announcement for which the test component (core or specialty subtest) is used. Please note that, should you re-test, your re-test score would become your official score since it is the most recent
