I guess I passed through the place early – it looked like a ghost town when I was there.
But the Yelpers, well, they love it.
The entrance at 428 11th:
Les mise-en-scene – reminds me of the spare vehicle lot / junkyard of Veterans Cab Co, which is what this place used to be. Instead of busted Plymouth Gran Furies we now have food trucks:
Open-air communal dining, redolent of the Main Pavilion at Jonestown:
Ah, here are the trees on Division shown in the plans. All this new activity has chased away the under-the-freeway stolen bicycle fences all the way to….
…just across Division Street:
Now, speaking of parking, here’s what you’ll see across the street from the main entrance: “PARKING IS FOR COSTCO SHOPPERS ONLY – Violators Will Be Towed”
So, you’ve been warned.
I don’t know, I’m sure it was a royal PITA to get the SFP up and running. And I know that the gestation period for this new baby was longer than a rhino’s, but of course a lot of that had to do with setting up the handicapped-accessible bathrooms and the pavillion and whatnot.
What I don’t know is how things will shake out for the SFP over the next year or two. This could be a case of a K-selection strategy in an r-selection environment.
M-F: 11 AM to 3 PM and 5 PM to 10 PM
