National Parking Day

Dune Scrub 01

Catherine reminded me that today was National Parking Day, "an opportunity to transform public parking spaces into parks and open spaces - places for people to enjoy." So I checked the map to see what parks there were near my office, and set out on my lunch hour to get pictures. Above is Dune Scrub Community Park, an oasis of San Francisco native plants by McCall Design Group.

The execution is whimsical, but the intent is serious: to highlight the need for public open space, and the loss of same to automobile-dedicated space.

Update: d accuses me of selling out. I don't know...he might just have a point.
