So now the largest play structure at five-star Yelp-rated Koret Children’s Quarter(s) in Golden Gate Park is shut down. And the part that is burned, with the slides and roofs, is connected to the climbing pole / pyramid you can see here on the right, and they’re connected to a few other things as well. All roped off:

So that’s it for the bigger kids play area at Koret now, and for a long time it looks like.

Parking Crisis Leads to a Fail, in Two Ways

June 23rd, 2017

And then on the other side, you can’t leave your bumper hanging over a crosswalk.

My Rx is a Scion IQ (out of production, due to lack of popularity) or a Smart car. Either would solve both probs…
