Playground Possibilities for the Waterfront
|September 8, 2010||Posted by jamie under Open Spaces, SBRMBNA|
Neighborhood leaders from the SoMa waterfront and the Barbary Coast neighborhood met with Recreation and Parks General Manager Phil Ginsburg last Thursday afternoon to discuss the need for a childrens playground somewhere around the Ferry Building.
One of my tasks is to gather interested neighbors who will work on the nitty gritty of planning and funding a playground project. Please e-mail me at RinconHill@gmail.com and let me know the email address at which you would like to receive updates and meeting notices for neighbors who want to be involved in building something for our neighborhood kids to enjoy.
In the meanwhile, one idea (and we’re at the early, early stage of just talking about ideas – we still need to nail down a location for a playground, so don’t get too fixated on any of this yet) being discussed is the Imagination Playground that has been met with great success in other urban areas.
