Cayuga Park, a small patch of greenery located beneath the BART viaduct and the freeway, has reopened after a multi-million dollar renovation that took years to come to fruition. For a long time, the park was ignored, leaving residents of Cayuga Terrace and the Outer Mission with an unsafe and unkempt playground and green space. Luckily, thanks to the 2008 Clean and Safe Neighborhood Parks Bond, the space has been completely transformed. According to Rec and Parks, the reopened Cayuga Park features a new clubhouse and playground, new courts, improved pathways and updated irrigation and landscaping. To boot, the park boasts public art in the form of sculptures of well-known locals, all crafted by Demetrio Braceros, who was also a city gardener. Area residents are no doubt happy to have their park back, especially since the sun should be coming out soon, allowing all to enjoy the fantastic new recreation area sans Karl the Fog.
