Excited Dog Just Can’t Get Enough from the Portable Water Sprinklers of Golden Gate Park

Thursday, September 16th, 2010

This is a scene from the Golden Gate Park Panhandle, which is, AFAIAC, a part of Golden Gate Park.

(Some disagree with this viewpoint but oh well, I mean I’ve never seen a map of GGP (or Idaho or Florida or Oklahoma) without the appropriate Panhandle attached…)

Anyway, this pooch just couldn’t get enough:

Who is Vandalizing the Lawn Sprinklers of Golden Gate Park?

Wednesday, July 29th, 2009

Now, you’d think that the water sprinklers of the Golden Gate Park Panhandle would be old school, like made 50 years ago out of some kind of heavy metal. But you’d be wrong – these things are mostly plastic. So there’s no market in stealing the sprinkler heads to sell for scrap or anything.

So, why do some people come along and wreck ’em? Do they do it to see this kind of scene?

Now back in the day, some SAAB cars used to spontaneously combust, just sitting around at night. But those days are over, so there’s no point in this exercise:

Bad form, vandals.

Lawn Sprinklers Provide Sweet Relief to Overheated Cyclists in the Pandhandle

Wednesday, April 22nd, 2009

Hot weather made Golden Gate Park panhandle bike path users cheer as they got sprayed yesterday.

That’s much better than getting sprayed at night, the way it happened last winter.

Why Do Users of the Panhandle Bike Path get Sprayed with Water at Night?

Friday, December 26th, 2008

It’s not raining, but this section of the bike and pedestrian path in the Golden Gate Park Pandhandle is wet nevertheless, owing to nighttime watering.

Just try to keep you, your dog and/or your bike dry when the sprinklers are sprinkling. That’s unpossible. It’s like you’re the pilot of a bomber in Operation Tidal Wave getting flak from all sides.

You might think that steps would have been taken after all these years to somehow get the wet stuff on the green stuff without turning the bike path into a slobstical course.
