Mission Playground Reopens

The folks over at Mission Local have a nice writeup about yesterday's reopening celebration for the Mission Playground. About 75 community members showed up for the big event. Phil Ginsburg, GM of the Rec and Park Department, invited all families present to cut the red ribbon. The renovated park features synthetic turf fields for soccer games, resurfaced tennis courts, a large water fountain and an adaptive recreation and inclusionary assessment center for kids with disabilities. "What you have today is as beautiful of a small urban park as I could imagine," said Ginsburg. The renovation was funded by a $7.5M parks bond paired with a $500,000 partnership with the City Fields Foundation. [Mission Local/photo via Holly Nall]
