Event Spotlight: Pitch In To Clean Up And Beautify Alta Plaza Park

Looking for an excuse to get outside and meet your neighbors this weekend? If you're near Pac Heights' scenic Alta Plaza park, consider meeting up with the Alta Plaza Park Volunteers for their quarterly day of outdoor work and socializing with your neighbors. 

Projects include everything from hedge trimming, mulching, pathway edging, planting and more, and tools (and snacks) are provided. 

The cleanup begins at 10am on Saturday, June 11th, with a breakfast of bagels, coffee and juice, all donated by local merchants. Meet at the children's playground on the north side of the park, and don't forget sunscreen and layers, in case of characteristically unpredictable weather. 

SF Rec and Park has some details on the event, plus a brief explainer on the park:

Alta Plaza lays claim to a unique role in San Francisco ‘s history. It operated as a rock quarry until 1877 when the City purchased the 12-acre parcel for park development.  Then thirty years elapsed before its transformation into the terraced plaza of today. Conceived and executed by the designer of Golden Gate Park, John McClaren, its elevated design affords outstanding views of San Francisco.

Never miss a story.
