Our March Workday

At our community workday last Saturday March 8, a bunch of new plants provided by SF Rec and Park were ready for planting into our rain garden (a variety of California native plants) and around the perimeter of the playground (different exotic plants). The western end of the playground, in particular, got a thorough re-planting in order to create a planting design that should be pleasant year-round. At the end of the workday, many other people from the community gathered to learn about and offer input into plans that are being prepared for submission to the Community Opportunity Fund. The plans respond to requests for capital improvements in the park such as an improved pathway, more benches, and better signage.
