This according to Nancy Gonzalez-Madynski, chair of the Friends of Dolores Park Playground. Rec and Parks capital division confirmed today a March completion in the Project Status Report.
The project is approximately 75% complete. All of the concrete walls have been poured. Except for staging area for flatwork work. Play equipment have started to arrive and are being laid out. Trees and Planting are ongoing, sod is being placed. Anticipate safety surfacing to commence mid-February.
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.
