Thank You to the Magic Seven!

Today’s workday went extremely well even with an extremely thin crew (7 folks which included one beautiful 6 months pregnant lady!) We got the new playground in ship shape by taking down all the weeds and sweeping the rubber surfaces and paths nearby.  All the bark was spread evenly again on the landscaped areas and then we were off to the Gambier Plaza to take on the weeds around the fountain and cut back the crab grass that’s slowly starting to encroach on the plaza.  As if that wasn’t enough, my magic hardworking crew still had enough energy to  move  large amounts of wood that gardener Ken Kelley was clearing from the old Cyprus trees at the Harvard street entrance.  Please see the piles of wood for yourselves.  By this time we were all quite exhausted and we were unable to continue our efforts  on Harvard Street but there was so much to show for our hard work.

The Magic 7 at Work

Two of “Seven”

Thank you again so much to those who came out on a weekday, even during a world cup event.  It goes to show, all it takes is 7 folks to make magic happen in McLaren Park.

Pictures soon to come!

SF Chron Praises McLaren Park Trails

Today, McLaren Park is undergoing a renaissance. A new 2.7-mile Philosopher’s Way trail winds around the perimeter of the park, leading you through McLaren’s premier vista spots, scented groves and sunny meadows. Rough-hewn stone arrows guide you along, and 14 musing stations encourage contemplation. Benches and stools hewn from recycled curbstone offer views overlooking the city. Polished black granite markers are etched with bits of history, reminiscence, poetry and images.
