Yesterday afternoon, the north side of Dolores Park reopened after more than a year of construction, which brought new grass fields, renovated sport courts, new restroom buildings, and improved access in keeping with the Americans with Disabilities Act. At the same time, a fence went up on the south side for the next phase of the park's rejuvenation to begin. We kind of couldn't wait for the opening yesterday at 3, so we sent intrepid Curbed photographer Patricia Chang over with her drone before the festivities got under way (plus, it seemed like a good idea to get a good look at the grass in its most pristine, untrampled state). In the photos, you can see the dirt on the side of the park still awaiting its sprucing, and the tent for the commemorative silent dance party, where some extremely discreet revelry was about to go down.
