Mayor Ed Lee was a fierce proponent and advocate for our City’s parks. Under his leadership, San Francisco made parks and recreation programs more accessible than ever, acquiring more park land, renovating parks, playgrounds and ball fields and providing more than $1 million in scholarships to city families. Earlier this year, Mayor Lee announced that San Francisco was the first and only city in the nation where all its residents live within a 10-minute walk of a park: http://bit.ly/2AhIRbS
We lost our park champion in chief. Mayor Lee loved this City and he loved our parks. Our thoughts are with the Mayor’s family. We will do all we can to offer support and comfort during this time of transition for Acting Mayor Breed and our beloved City. May the Mayor’s memory be a blessing.
