Friends of Boeddeker Park at Sunday Streets

Tenderloin Sunday Streets

On August 18, the Friends of Boeddeker Park partnered with the Trust for Public Land in performing community outreach at the Tenderloin neighbor Sunday Streets event.  Sunday Streets encourage recreation, community activities and fun in San Francisco. On various Sundays throughout the year, stretches of neighborhood streets are closed to automobile traffic and opened to the public for several hours, so residents and visitors can enjoy a large, temporary, open space where they can bike, walk, run, dance, do yoga, or any other physical activity.  At the Tenderloin Sunday Streets, some visitors stopped by the Friends of Boeddeker Park Ellis Street info booth to play the larger-than-life Jenja building-block game.  Others stopped by to inquire on the status of the park, which is currently undergoing a massive renovation.  It is scheduled for completion in April 2014, and community members are looking forward to reconnecting with their neighborhood park.
