There has been a lot of excitement lately surrounding the multitude of Pavement to Parks projects popping up around the city. However, this particular vacant-lot-turned-mini-park on Judah and the Great Highway has been around since 2004. (And as someone who in high school frequently crossed the former trash-filled concrete median to grab some coffee at nearby Java Beach, I can attest that it was a much welcome change.) Now the Outer Sunset community and the Surfrider Foundation are extending La Playa Park to the median on the other side of the N Judah streetcar turnaround — and adding a bocce ball court!

This perfectly framed shot of Laguna Street near Fort Mason highlights the contrast between streetscape and parkscape. I know which path I want to take!

And we conclude this week with a beautiful and piercing set of eyes in the Mission. I keep finding something new in the details of this mural!
