While the City's Rec and Park department is declaring that Dolores Park is hurting for some serious renovation ("Mission Dolores is being loved to death"), neighbors who call the park their "front yard" are digging in their heels — freaked at the prospect of the park being closed entirely. For months!
Wednesday night, when the idea of doing the park's renovation all in one go, rather than in phases, came up at a meeting, no one was in support.
Then a Rec and Park director asked: "[What] if phasing it meant that there was construction going on some part of Mission Dolores [Park] three to four years as opposed to eight months?" Basically, this isn't going to be pretty. [Mission Loc@l, previously]
