    Oh em gee, the long-beleaguered Dolores Park Playground will get a big revamp next year, and it will include "many fun and whimsical elements such as a mini Bay Bridge and two new boats."

    As a bonus, the drawing also makes it look quite amenable to Where's Waldo exercises. A Chron story today discusses the "new model" of the Rec & Park Department working together with community groups; whereas there was no clearcut way for people to donate help or money toward the playground before, it seems such issues have been cleared away.

    The construction of the new playground will use a $1.5 million grant from the Mercer Fund, while the city and Friends of Dolores Park Playground will drop money into a maintenance fund.
