With possible staff cuts looming, The Recreation and Park Department needs some cash and the Mayor says he can deliver. Yesterday, he told his open-space task force (task force? really?) that he will find money for the city's parks if the organization can demonstrate need. (If we were MUNI, we'd hold on to our wallets.) The RPD told the mayor that they've been actively searching the East side of the city for land on which to build new parks. Need land for parks? Curbed would like to suggest local art activists Rebar's solution. Install Park(ing) spaces throughout the city. RPD, it's time to get creative.
