The EcoCenter opened on Earth Day of 2010 with Literacy for Environmental Justice (LEJ) as its original owner. With the Port's consent and communtiy support, LEJ designed and funded the creation of the EcoCenter to be used as a teaching resource for folks interested in environmental sustainability. It is now owned and maintained by the Port of San Francisco and operated by the San Francisco Recreation and Park Department.

The EcoCenter is an off-the-grid facility with solar panels, a living roof, and a constructed wetland designed to treat wastewater. It offers free educational youth programs, habitat restoration volunteer days, drop-in tours of the building, and a community gathering space for the Bayview Hunter's Point Community.The EcoCenter is open Wednesday-Sunday 9:30am-3:30pm.
