Here’s What the San Francisco Botanical Garden Looked Like Before They Started Charging $7 Per Day Admission

This is from before the time they put up the tollbooths. (I’ve stopped going there myself, a kind of boycott, I suppose.)

These days the place is a ghost town and all the docents are upset about the big change.

Oh well.

Attendance is “less than anticipated” but the people who did the anticipating knew they were lying so I don’t know how you score that one.

Oh well.

    Wait, you mean the tollbooths haven’t collected gazillions of dollars to ensure that we have a “world-class botanical garden”? But we were promised…Everybody involved in this grotesquerie deserves to be drummed out of public office, and that’s a pretty large list.

    You should go there and check out what Arts Commission Member Topher Delaney has undertaken on her own to do to the Demonstration Gardens.

    It is a tragedy what has been done there.

    The gates behind the Hall of Flowers are frequently left open or unlocked Mon. to Sat., so you can slip in without having to go through the Gestapo.

    Now, an elitist lawyer from Piedmont is at the helm, helping them to put in their $13 million new office building with fence (behind the Redwood Grove).

    A tragedy all around!
