Anonymous Coward | June 17th, 2011 @ 5:15pm [Permalink] That is the ugliest parklet I have ever seen ! EH | June 18th, 2011 @ 8:00am [Permalink] I met a girl once who lives by here and she called it “The Hurricane Katrina Memorial Park.” The picture above conveniently excludes the ridiculous steel tubs strewn about. MissionDweller | June 18th, 2011 @ 3:24pm [Permalink] I drive and walk by here often and I have never actually seen anyone in this park; even on sunny weekend afternoons. I am sure someone uses, but it is not in high demand. If there was an actual need or desire for a parklet, this is not a bad place; the street did not carry a lot of traffic and people can just continue a block to CC and turn right to get where they are going. The Noe parklet would have cut off a significant cross-street. I am not sure about the “open-mind” – both this project and the Noe St. project seemed motivated by a desire to create parklets and “reclaim” streets rather than any assessment of need and feasibility. So it is really more political correct than anything else.

I am person who has enjoyed that park too and I’m glad it is there.
