Lyft GoBike Expansion UPDATE! 

Thanks to all who participated in the community survey last month. At the June 27th District 2 Leadership Meeting convened by Supervisor Catherine Stefani, participants expressed their strong opposition to the extensive Lyft GoBike expansion program. The Supervisor reported all further progress is on hold and we were assured that all survey response data will be preserved and factored into any proposals brought before the SFMTA. Friends of Alta Plaza Park will continue to monitor and report on this critical issue.

Children's Playground Sandbox Restoration

SFRPD gardeners Roberto Chavez and Emma Thoeni transferred a FIVE TON delivery of fresh sand from the plaza to restore the sandbox to its full capacity.  Anticipating further improvements, SFRPD management has designated Alta Plaza Park for playground resurfacing. We look forward to announcing a project start date for our well used playground destination.

A Summertime Clean & Green Day Recap

With record high temperatures on June 8, a hearty band of volunteers joined our SFRPD gardeners in timely fashion. Underlying cardboard and mulch topping were applied to ensure hydration and preclude weed infiltration of newly planted beds at the Jackson and Pierce entry.
