NEW PARK ON HARRISON STREET IN RINCON HILL
Please join the planning process for a much-needed new park at 333 Harrison Street at Fremont Street for the kickoff meeting on December 8th from 6pm – 8pm at One Rincon Hill’s Hospitality Room. The Emerald Fund continues to build goodwill in the community by asking open space advocates Isabel Wade and Corinne Woods to moderate our initial meeting. Please scroll down to learn more about Isabel Wade, who was honored just last week at SPUR’s Awards Luncheon for her decades of open space advocacy, and as founder of San Francisco’s Neighborhood Parks Council.
The park will provide 23,500 square feet of open space and recreation amenities for our green-deficient neighborhood. Now is the time to get involved and to make sure your input/ideas are considered by the community!
The new park will not only be an invaluable respite in our dense part of town, but will also feature sustainable design from the ground up– and we’d like your ideas in this regard too!
Enjoy holiday snacks and drinks while we begin our planning process over the next 3 months; meet with new neighbors from all parts of the neighborhood.
Bring your most creative ideas and visions– they will inform a grant request to the State.
Date & Time : December 8th, 6-8pm
Host: Emerald Fund
Moderators: Open Space Advocates, Isabel Wade and Corinne Woods
Meeting Location: One Rincon Hill Hospitality Room (Harrison at 1st Street – be extra careful crossing Harrison Street if you’re walking! )
Please call 415-777-2914 for the location of all meetings and their dates or email urbanres -at- igc -dot- org with questions.
Everybody who lives in the Rincon HIll neighborhood should try to attend this meeting (granted there are physical space limitations in One Rincon Hill’s community room) to provide input on this new park located close to the current concentration of Rincon Hill residents .. but you should also attend to hear and to learn from San Francisco open space advocates Isabel Wade and Corinne Woods. Kudos to Emerald Fund for getting the best possible people to help our community figure out our aspirations for this new park!
Right behind transportation related issues, I personally believe the need for open spaces is a close second on the list of the most important issues affecting residents of the Rincon Hill neighborhood because of the number of people expected to live here in the not too distant future (10 years goes by pretty quickly, I think). Please learn more about the great work of the group from which Isabel Wade just recently “retired,” San Francisco’s Neighborhood Parks Council.
This is a 3-month process – please get involved from the outset by attending the December 8th meeting at One Rincon Hill’s Hospitality Room!
