Beautiful Opening Day

Carla Crane cutting the ribbon ~ it's official!

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.

Kezar Triangle is a 2.8 acre multipurpose grass meadow located between Kezar Drive, Arguello Boulevard, and Lincoln Way in Golden Gate Park. With significant support from the David and Carla Crane Foundation, Kezar Triangle was revitalized to promote a holistic approach to place that combines art, ecology and community engagement. More than $500,000 has been donated by the David and Carla Crane Foundation to the San Francisco Parks Alliance and Friends of Kezar Triangle. Improvements include adding native plants to the landscape, upgrading the irrigation system, and installing new accessible pedestrian pathways. Landscape design was created through a community process led by Friends of Kezar Triangle with Miller Company Landscape Architects. In addition Friends of Kezar Triangle are working with community members, San Francisco Rec and Parks Department, and the San Francisco Arts Commission to install temporary nature-based art.

Hope to see you there!
