In the shadow of the Painted Ladies, an eroding Alamo Square Park

Friday, April 5, 2013

It may be one of San Francisco’s more photographed vantage points, but the park overlooking those famous Victorians has been in tough shape for awhile now, pocked with taped-off areas to keep people from stumbling into sink holes. The problem: an obsolete, leaky irrigation system that’s reduced sections of the grassy hillside to mush. A new system, with a price tag of $2.3 million, is in the design stage, but there’s no timeline yet on when it might be installed. Bay Nature blogs about it.
