Yesterday, September 5, 2014, Friends of Alta Plaza Park met with Jeffrey Miller and the Miller Company Landscape Architectcts team that is working on the development of the Master Plan for the renovation of Alta Plaza Park. We came away from the meeting awe-struck. Led by Mr. Miller, the team has kept the essence of the park's personality while creating design solutions for repair/improvement of the infrastructure, improvement of accessibility and safety, enhancement of use, and integration of the overall aesthetic of the park.
We can't say enough good things about Miller Landscape Architects' approach to addressing the problems of the park. They have listened to the input of the community and are constructively helping us to envision how we can make the park the best it can be.
Alta Plaza is truly a gem among San Francisco's parks. The views from the park are outstanding -- both from the north side, with outlooks over the Bay, and from its terraced south side, with city views. The park is special enough to attract visitors not only from the surrounding neighborhoods but also from other parts of the city, the Bay Area, the state, the U.S. and foreign countries, who make it a destination. The Miller team is helping us to put back the polish on our San Francisco gem. Three upcoming community meetings are intended to get more input from the community and to finalize the plan for submission to the Recreation and Park Commission early next year. Please come to the meetings to give us your thoughts and reactions.....details of date, time, place on the Events page.
