    San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee is joining other city and community  leaders to celebrate the opening of a new street park in the city's  Bernal Heights neighborhood.

       The Vista Pointe Street Park consists of previously unmaintained  land that was converted into a public space with retaining walls, new soil  and plants, a pathway and a seating area where visitors can take in a view of  the San Francisco skyline, Department of Public Works officials said.

       The space is located near the corner of Bernal Heights Boulevard  and Bradford Street at the base of Bernal Heights Park, and is the latest  addition to the city's Street Parks Program, in which residents can adopt and  beautify streets, medians and city-owned public rights-of-way.

       The project was a collaboration between the Department of Public  Works, Friends of Bernal Gardens, and the San Francisco Parks Trust.
