What began as stormy morning, turned into a beautiful day and hundreds came out to celebrate the opening of the new Hellen Diller Playground at Mission Dolores.
Mayor Ed Lee, Helen Diller, Phil Ginsburg, and Scott Wiener helped the Friends of Dolores Park Playground cut the ceremonial ribbon. Nancy Gonzalez-Madynski, chair of The Friends of Dolores Park Playground was so excited, “it exceeded all our expectations”, she said.
SambaFunk led a pre Carnival kick off and Orange Sherbet performed kid songs. Bi-Rite Creamery handed out ice cream, and volunteers gave away snacks. It was a great party to celebrate a wonderful new playground.
