Kezar Triangle Spring Celebration

It’s hard to believe Kezar Triangle’s makeover is already one year old – but let’s get together and celebrate Spring!  The monthly first Saturday workdays are making an impact and we would like to have a special celebration on May 2.  Join us to work refreshing the plantings from 9-12 and then bring a picnic and hang out from 12-2.

Friends of Kezar Triangle needs additional help lining up music, entertainment, and food donations for the event – if you can assist let us know.  You can contact Steve at steves@sfparksalliance.org or 415-621-3260×118.

We also need help spreading the word – here is PDF flyer that can be distributed!  Kezar Spring Celebration

Hope to see you on May 2!

 

 

Beautiful Opening Day

Thank you all so much for the inspirational Opening Day at the Triangle. Perfect weather, great turn out and lots of fun. Thanks to all who joined us and especially to the performers and volunteers who made it all possible. A truly heart warming way to celebrate the opening of this newly transformed public space.

Here are some photos from the event itself uploaded by Rec and Park staff plus an album of more photos on Facebook!

There’s even a video!

Please join us as we plan events and future temporary art for the Kezar Triangle as well as volunteer work parties to help week and tend to the plantings.

New neighbors!

CommUNITY Gardens

The small site previously occupied for decades by the HANC (Haight Ashbury Neighborhood Council) Recycling Center and gardens just East of the Kezar Triangle has been fixed up by SFRPD and is now called the Golden Gate Park CommUNITY Garden!  Here’s a brief video from the opening:

How will this space for urban gardeners affect the Kezar Triangle?  Looking forward to exploring collaborations as people begin to get their hands in the soil and garden and the Kezar Triangle gets spruced up to create new opportunities for everyone in the neighborhood. Stay tuned!
