Latest as of April 12th. 2013 - Peru St. Playground Project in McLaren
the infrastructure of this playground than any one person could ever imagine. I
think its being built to withstand a 200 year storm, a 9.9 earthquake and a
tsunami all at the same time but in the end I am sure we will all be happy
knowing its the safest playground in town. Of course there has been the usual
ADA access ramp last minute changes which added to the delays, but for the most
part things are beginning to take shape. I was told we will more than likely
see a finish to this project in May. So hang tight everyone. Two more months!
The contractors have began the demolition of the old site. Some very large and sick trees were just cut down to make way for the new ADA pathway. Apparently the trees were growing in and around the power lines for so long that electricity was actually passing through the trees! Several Strawberry Trees are in the plans to be used in and around the playground. The old swing set, that was the last survivor of the old 70's playground, was removed just the other day. It's pole was burried in over a yard of concrete several feet down. The contractor had a heluva time trying to get that out of the ground I am sure. Our official groundbreaking is coming soon. Please join us in celebrating what years of hard work and dedication by many neighbors and friends of the park can do. The best things in life sometime require a whole lot of work and expecially when it comes to McLaren Park! But in the end it will get done!! Merry Christmas everyone!!!
Current Project: Gambier St. Plaza Renovation
Our mission is to attract more park users from all walks of life and all corners of San Francisco and the bay through beautification, restoration, repair and most importantly, safety for all.
We plan to achieve this goal by
restoring lost playgrounds and picnic areas so our cities children can have a place to play once again as well as installing informational kiosks throughout the park so all park users, young and old alike, are aware of park functions, meetings, occurences and vital information they can use to help make McLaren Park be a stronger and more powerful force within our community and city.
