The curb ramps leading into the park from Cole Street are under reconstruction. Two of them look complete (one on the north and one on the south). The other two are still underway.

Similar work was completed at Clayton last year. And curb ramps were rebuilt at Fell/Baker in September at the start of the PUC's stormwater project. Accessibility is important, but I sense that photos and posts about curb ramps aren't very stirring. Watch for more interesting news about the Panhandle coming out soon!
A tree toppled a few days ago - this morning it still remained just off the bike path on the north side, at the intersection with Central Ave. Monterey Pine are increasingly scarce in the park. The larger pine tree (shown in the picture) is still standing directly across the path, but shows some signs of stress, such as losing needles and producing large number of cones.
Our next workday will come up quickly, on Saturday, November 8. You're all warmly invited to join fellow neighbors in the park for a workday involving raking, weed-pulling, and mulch-shoveling to keep the park looking good. This month, we'll be joined by one of the honor societies from the University of San Francisco.
