Via Google, a view of Sue Bierman Park from above, pre-grass
The pro-Monkey Bar lobby may have won a small victory yesterday as the BOS unanimously voted to lift a 2001 ban on any structures in the lovely and newly-green Sue Bierman Park. Meaning that Rec & Parks can start planning a playground with funding to come from donations. We're thinking it could be the first America's Cup Playground, or maybe the developers of 8 Washington Street will kick in some change. Parents have been actively pushing for a playground in the neighborhood since the bocce courts went in next door at Justin Herman Plaza, and raising the money- estimated at $600K- for a few swing sets and a sandbox should be a snap. Plus even outgoing supervisors are not going to kick small children in the head.
