What may be even more exciting have been the arrival of a semi-truck load of trees and shrubs last week and the installation today of the Bridge.  This bright international orange causeway connects the now landscaped central Climbing-hill with the top of the soon to arrive Supper Slide. Can’t wait!  More photos here.

The successful on-time completion of this project will mark a great success for The Friends of Dolores Park Playground, Rec and Parkphilanthropy and the 2008 Park Bond program.
