The first in a series of community workshops to plan for the rehabilitation of Dolores Park will be Thursday, June 2, 6:30 pm at Mission High cafeteria. At this first workshop, we will brainstorm a wish list of park improvements and tour the park to create a shared vision of what works for the park and what could use improvement. As Rec and Park invitation handed out in the park over the weekend states-
The well-loved amenities of Dolores Park are in need of significant rehabilitation. These changes can’t happen without input from the users of Mission Dolores Park. With your help, the park will soon be as good as new. Please join your neighbors at the first community meeting to discuss the improvements and help ensure that the plan addresses the diverse needs of the park and its users.
The June 2nd workshop will be followed by 3 additional design sessions on June 30, July 21 and September 1 where we will decide the priorities of the project, create a conceptual plan and then refine the details.
We will be working with a design team lead by two landscape architecture firms Royston, Hanamoto, Alley &Abey and Hamilton + Aitken. Aditya Advani, of RHAA told us that the the team “will strive to improve what’s there, not reinvent. This is our philosophy as architects.”
