What's the status of the Dolores Park renovation project? Word is it's approaching another major shutdown.
As you recall, the major renovation plans for Dolores Park finally cleared environmental review in May after many years of public meetings, design by committee, and appeals. The whole park is set to get an overhaul with ADA compliance, new playgrounds and infrastructure, and redesigned layouts - and with certain sections closed off for construction, park fans are going to have to
battle over share the coveted grassy knoll. So what's the timeline? The playground area at the north part of the part has already been redone, but park lovers can expect things to get a bit more cozy very soon. Our friends at Mission Local have dug up the details on the renovation schedule: starting in January 2014, construction is set to close the entire north half of the park between 18th and 19th streets for about six months (except for the newly renovated playground). Once the north half is done, they'll take a month to construct the path from 19th Street up to the playground, and then another six months for the southern half of the park. Rec & Parks plans to hold a community open house to detail the phased closure and reopening schedule sometime in early December.
