Dawn Patrol: The SFPD Rousting Bleary-Eyed, Bicycle-Thieving Hippies at 6 AM in Golden Gate Park, 94117

Wednesday, January 29th, 2014

This is what it looks like, in the middle of the Panhandle halfway betwixt Fell and Oak, sometimes, when Park Station goes on we-own-the-night Dawn Patrol:

SFPD Crown Vic radio cars do OK driving on the grass, until it gets too muddy in there.

Look out, sleepy hippies!

Our Seemingly-Always-Muddy Golden Gate Park Panhandle is Quite Muddy These Days, As Per Usual

Did a Rec and Park cart get stuck in the middle of the Panhandle again? Sure looks that way from this photo, ’cause as we learned from My Cousin Vinny, tire tracks don’t lie.

Instead of working on aesthetics all the time,  why doesn’t the PRD work on tasks they’re supposed to work on, like drainage ‘n stuff?

Just asking, bro.

The Middle of the Golden Gate Panhandle is Turning Into a Bog, But Don’t Let That Stop Your Frisbee Football Game

But don’t park your rear-wheel-drive vehicle anywhere near the middle of the Panhandle, else the bog will eat it up. For instance, SFPD prowlers (aka radio cars, aka cruisers) patrolling the GGP get bogged down in La Brea North all the time. See?

I don’t think our Panhandle wants to be a dry, grassy meadow…

SFPD Prowler Trapped in the Great Muddy Bog of the Golden Gate Park Panhandle

Tuesday, February 2nd, 2010

Our recent rains have turned the middle of the Golden Gate Park Panhandle betwixt Oak and Fell into a Great Muddy Bog.

So when you’re prowling about looking for criminales in your nose-heavy, rear-wheel-drive Crown Victoria it’s easy to get stuck in the mud, as the operators of Radio Car 075 discovered last night.

A quick tug from a friendly tow truck driver and you’re back on the pedestrian path where you belong(?).

It would be nice to have more drainage here and maybe also it’d be nice to bring back the Panhandle Bandshell.

Maybe someday.
