Rec and Park Cancels Spring – But Here’s What Alamo Square Looks Like from the Wrong Side of the FenceFriday, March 24th, 2017
And what’s the reply? Give us more money, most likely.
“Rec & Park seems under the impression that garbage cans somehow create litter. No, really: Since cans often overflow and people have a habit of leaving garbage on top of or just off the side of an empty can, a certain civic theory goes that cutting out the cans will in turn cut out the overall garbage. Admittedly, there is a certain logic to this, in the same way that chopping off your hands prevents arthritis.”
And here’s the Panhandle – this can is doing the work of three now:
(Perhaps for different reasons, IDK. But actually, I’m totally baffled as to why they removed ALL the garbage cans from Dolores Park either. Somehow this makes sense to the ppl inside RPD.)

I don’t exactly know how our SFGov wants people to ascend Twin Peaks these days – perhaps not at all.
Here’s how you get down, through the trampled down part of this fencing:
The western peak lacks fencing, for now.
And here’s the eastern peak again, also with trampled down fencing on its west side as well:
I mean no big deal, but if SFGov wants to keep ppl out of here, it’s doing a bad job. The thundering herd will simply mow over flimsy fencing such as this…
This is what it looks like:
