Dogpatch Neighborhood Association Meeting: November 15, 2011 at 7pm

Dogpatch Neighborhood Association

Per the description on

Regular Members meeting. Moved to Nov. 15 because of election Day. Agenda to follow shortly. New development on the way! A new garden at the Muni mini park….More!

Of course I have a previous engagement, why would my schedule magically clear up? If anyone can scribble some notes, I’d love to type them up for you.

The “Muni mini park,” which is not an off-leash dogpark, is called Woods Yard Park. Observe:

Woods Yard is a block-long miniature open space with two grassy areas and a few shade trees. In between the grass area you’ll find a large sand pit for the kids to play in. Dog-waste bags are provided; restrooms are not.

Emphasis mine. I wouldn’t let children play in that sand after seeing all the neighborhood dogs doing their business there.

If you’re wondering what happened to the two fig trees that were in the middle of the park, I spoke to a worker a few months ago who said that they had not been planted correctly and that had led to the roots suffocating and rotting. New greenery has been planted since, and a sign to keep dogs out of the landscaped areas. I don’t know where they would put a new garden, but that little park could use a bit of love.

    I know this is a super old post but do you know what those pillar things are in the concrete areas at “Woods Yard Park”? What is that? Are they for something? Besides leaning on while smoking or peeing? I’ve lost the last 10 minutes at work trying to google up an answer.

    I believe that they were originally part of sculpture or play equipment.
